- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 14, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure all allegations or suspicions of sexual abuse were reported no later than two hours to the facility’s Administrator, the California Department of Public Health, and local law enforcement.”
When a resident “exposed himself in front of a female resident and a female staff member, the facility staff did not report [this incident] to the Administrator or the Abuse Coordinator Designee. The facility reported the incident to the California Department of Public Health, FL & C Program, local police, and Long-Term Care Ombudsman more than forty-eight hours after the staff had been aware of the abuse allegation. This failure placed [the resident], other residents, staff, and visitors at risk for potential further abuse.”
The state investigators reviewed the Report of Suspected Dependent Elder/Adult Abuse Form dated July 16, 2019. The document shows that “the facility had reported an allegation of possible sexual abuse against [a resident].” Another resident reported that she and a Certified Nursing Assistant observed the sexually aggressive resident “naked on July 13, 2019.” However, the incident was not reported to proper authorities until July 16, 2019.
A CNA had reported that she observed the sexually aggressive resident “naked on the smoking patio.” A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “he and another staff went to the patio and observed [the resident] leaving the patio area.” The nurse noted that the resident “had covered himself, so staff did not approach them.” The nurse said, “he did not report the incident to the Director of Nursing or the Administrator.”
However, another incident involving a CNA indicated that the resident had “removed the towel from his lap and was exposing himself, his penis was visible to her, [a female resident], and anyone else in the patio or outside the glass double doors leading to the lobby.”
