The nursing home failed to investigate an “allegation of staff-to-resident neglect. This deficient practice was identified [for one resident] reviewed for neglect.”
The survey team became aware of an allegation of staff-to-resident neglect while interviewing the resident. The resident “reported an alleged incident that had occurred the day before.” The resident said that they had asked a staff member to put them back to bed saying they had “requested to be put back into bed, and the staff member left the room. The resident stated when the staff member later returned to the resident’s room [they] again asked the staff member to be put back to bed.”
At that time, the staff member allegedly told the resident they were leaving “and the night shift staff would put [the resident] back to bed. The resident told the nurse that [they] had been left seated in a chair for three hours after [they] had asked the staff member to put [them] back to bed.”
During an interview with the resident, the surveyor asked the resident if anyone from the facility had asked for their statement. The resident stated “No.” The surveyor interviewed the Licensed Nursing Home Administrator in charge of “facility abuse and neglect investigations.”
The Administrator stated that the resident’s “allegation of neglect involving a staff member had not been reported to her.” The Administrator said that “it is the facility policy to notify [the Administrator] immediately of any allegation of abuse or neglect and that she was not aware of the allegation.”
The nursing home “failed to evaluate a resident’s wound pain management or administer pain medication [before] completing wound care.” The Progress Note documentation identified “that the resident had been experiencing pain with wound care since November 2015 but did not receive pain management [before] wound care” until three months later.
