The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure an allegation of abuse was reported [timely], as specified by the facility policy.” The resident’s Care Plan documented that a nurse verbally abused the patient.
Three Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) confirmed: “any allegations of abuse should have been reported immediately to the Administrator, Abuse Coordinator or Supervisor on Duty.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that a Certified Nursing Assistant “placed a note under her office door on September 17, 2017.” The Director said that the note alleged that the resident “was verbally and physically abused” two days earlier. The Director indicated, “she went into the office on September 16, 2017, and there was no note under the door or in the mailbox.”
The Director indicated, “there were other staff members on duty” on that day, and “the CNA should have told someone about the incident.”
A Complaint/Grievance Report indicated that a CNA “yelled and cursed [at] a resident while changing him.” The Director noted that “she was not familiar with the complaint regarding [the resident] and verified the complaint was not self-reported to the State Agency.”
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated they interviewed the resident, and the resident “denied the incident. The LPN indicated the facility’s policy was to self-report the allegation and start an investigation. The LPN confirmed the CNA involved in the incident regarding [the resident] was not placed on suspension,” as required by law.
The LPN interviewed the resident [and] another staff on duty and said that “the allegation did not occur.” The LPN stated that “she did not need to self-report the incident because the resident denied the allegation.”
The “facility failed to follow Physician’s orders.” One resident’s Care Plan documented that the patient “was at risk for impaired skin integrity related to [a] debilitated state and as evidenced by soft bilateral heels with the potential to break down.” However, “there was no documented evidence in the Care Plan the resident’s heels were offloaded daily.”
The resident was observed on three different occasions between June 6, 2017 and June 7, 2017. The resident was lying “in bed on a low air loss mattress. The resident’s heels were not elevated, [as required by the Physician’s orders], and were lying directly on the mattress.”
