- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 7, 2018

The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report an allegation of physical abuse affecting [two residents] to the State Licensing Agency. This failure had the potential to affect the health and safety of the residents.”
The state investigative team observed and interviewed the resident and noted that “there were no visible signs of an injury.” The resident stated that “somebody punched her on the head [and that she] could not recall when or who punched her.”
A review of the resident’s clinical records indicated that the resident “was punched with a closed fist twice on her face by [another resident] at 5:50 PM in the dining room.” The Director of Staff Development confirmed that the resident “was punched by [another resident] twice on the head.”
The Director of Nursing stated that “she was responsible for reporting abuse to the State Licensing Agency. However, she was not able to provide documentation that the physical abuse was reported.” The Director “was not able to provide the facility’s policy and procedure regarding abuse reporting to the State Agency when requested.”
The facility “failed to ensure adequate screening of their potential employees [before] their date of hire was implemented.” The deficient practice affected one Licensed Vocational Nurse. This “failure had the potential for residents to be exposed to employees with a history of abuse or inappropriate behavior.”
The state investigative team and the facility Administrator reviewed one employee’s files that revealed the hire date and showed that “her pre-employment background check was done [two months] after she was hired.” The facility Administrator verified that the background check should have been completed before the licensed vocational nurse was hired.
