For many years, nursing home residents throughout the United States have been subjected to neglect and abuse by caregivers, employees, or other residents.

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

The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure one allegation of misappropriation of a resident’s property was reported to the State Agency [timely].”
The state investigators reviewed the facility’s Grievance Resolution Form that revealed that a resident had “reported she went to the shower room and when she came back, her wallet was missing. The documentation revealed two credit cards, a debit card, and $120 were missing.”
The facility assigned the Unit Manager/Assistant Director of Nursing to investigate. The resident was interviewed during the investigation and stated that “her wallet was stolen last week. The resident stated that the wallet had $120, two credit cards, a debit card, her ID card, health insurance card, Social Security card, and a checkbook in it.”
The resident stated that “she made the staff aware and that [a specific staff member] spoke to her about it.” The Director of Nursing stated during an interview that “they were aware of the resident’s concerns and a grievance form had been started.”
The investigation involved interviews with two staff members. One staff member stated that the resident had reported the incident and “that she was missing a coral color wallet that contains a credit card and $120.” The staff member indicated that “this concern would have been reported to the State Agency if the resident would have stated that the wallet and the items inside had been stolen.” A review of the State Agency Data Base “did not reveal the allegation had been reported” as required.
The facility “failed to ensure transmission-based precautions were implemented for [one resident].” A Nurse Practitioner had noted on December 4, 2018, that the resident had a medical condition “with a generalized rash that includes macules [discolored, flat, distinct areas of skin] and that treatment had been completed on November 2, 2018. This note also included a plan for dermatology to biopsy the recurrent rash.”
A review of the Dermatology Consult Note dated December 6, 2018, revealed that the “dermatologist believed that this was a case of classic rabies rash around the waist, rib cage, and arms and recommended following scabies protocol in the facility.”
