The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report the results of an investigation for an allegation of abuse within five working days of the incident,” as required by law.
State investigators reviewed the facility-reported incident documents, dated November 10, 2017. The documents reveal that “a resident was involved in an employee-to-resident altercation. The facility documented there was an allegation of physical abuse by a staff member.”
However, “the facility lacked documented evidence of a final report of the investigation of physical abuse [to ensure that it was] submitted within five working days of the incident.”
The facility-reported incident, dated January 24, 2017, revealed “a resident was involved in an employee-to-resident altercation. The facility documented there was an allegation of verbal abuse by a staff member.” However, this report lacked any documented evidence of a final report of the investigation “of verbal abuse [that] was submitted within five working days of the incident.”
The facility Director of Nursing acknowledged “a final report of the investigation of physical and verbal abuse was not submitted within five working days of the incident.”
The “facility failed to consistently document behavior monitoring for [fourteen residents].” Specifically, the Antidepressant Monthly Flowsheet “lacked documentation for the number of episodes of common side effects of the antidepressant” on all shifts. The “form was blank.”
Additionally, the “Antidepressant Monthly Flowsheet lacked evidence of consistent documentation for the monitoring of resident behavior and the side effects of antidepressants.”
A Licensed Nurse explained that “staff documented unwitnessed behaviors by either leaving the entry blank or writing in a zero. The nurse confirmed there would have been no way to know if an assessment was not done by using the blank entry method.”
In a separate part of the investigation, the antipsychotic monthly flow records “lacked documentation for the number of episodes documented for the target behaviors for sad facial expressions” for two shifts on numerous days between March 5, 2017, and March 27, 2017.
