- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date December 14, 2018
- Failure to Develop and Implement a Complete Plan of Care That Meets All the Resident’s Needs – citation #F656 date March 5, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report the results of the facility’s investigation to the California Department of Public Health within five working days of the incident for one resident-to-resident altercation.”
The state investigators conducted an unannounced visit on October 23, 2018, at 8:00 AM “to investigate a complaint of a facility-reported incident regarding an allegation of sexual abuse.” The document indicates that one resident “inappropriately touched [another resident’s] private part.” The investigation involved an allegedly sexually aggressive resident who “did not have the capacity to understand and make decisions.”
The sexually assaulted resident “had severely impaired cognitive skills and requires extensive assistance with one-person assist from staff for bed mobility, transfer, personal hygiene, and dressing.” The facility’s investigation report indicated that a Licensed Vocational Nurse heard the resident scream and “she entered the resident’s room.” The report stated that the nurse saw the allegedly aggressive resident sitting on the other resident’s bed. The aggressive resident’s “right hand was on [the other resident’s] private part.”
The Licensed Vocational Nurse immediately separated the residents. The facility Administrator stated that “the facility did not report the results of the investigation to the Department within five days of the incident, involving [both residents], which occurred on October 12, 2018.” The Administrator stated that “there was no good excuse, he usually sends the investigation results to the Department, but he did not do it at this time.”
The “facility failed to implement the Plan of Care for [one resident] as indicated in the facility’s policy. This deficient practice resulted in no hours of sleep monitoring for the use of a hypnotic [medication].” This deficient practice placed the resident “at risk of continued use of unnecessary medication.”
The investigative team observed the resident “ambulating with his walker in the facility” before coming to a resting position while standing. At that time, the resident “leaned over the left side of his walker and closed his eyes.” The Director of Nursing verified that the Care Plan for the use of the hypnotic medication “was not being followed to monitor the hours of sleep.”
