- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date November 2, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report an allegation of physical abuse made by the family of a resident.” This “deficient practice had the potential for the alleged abuse to be undetected and investigated properlyto ensure resident safety.”
The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who “requires extensive one-person assistance for transfers, dressing, and toilet use.” The resident’s Care Plan for Altered Mood – Behavior Patterns related to dementia indicated that the patterns exhibited included “a sad facial expression or poor appetite or overeating. The Care Plan did not indicate whether the behavior was poor appetite or overeating. The goal was to reduce the episodes of mood/behavior daily for ninety days.” There “was no documentation provided that indicated the intervention was attempted or what the results of the findings were.”
In a separate incident, another resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) indicated that this resident “did not exhibit any behavioral symptoms to others such as verbal/vocal symptoms like screaming or making disruptive sounds.”
The Incident Report that an Activity Director went “to the dining room and reported that a family member of the resident had some issues regarding the [behaviors of the resident noted above also in the dining room] toward them.” This resident “was sitting on a chair, watching television when asked what happened.” The family member reported that the resident “was shouting at them and pushed the dining table.” The resident “was asked to immediately be separated and was asked what happened.” The resident said “I was just telling them to keep quiet because I am watching football, and I can barely hear it. No injuries were noted during the incident with both parties.”
The staff intervened and the supervisor was called. However, one family member “called the police and she felt afraid of [the verbally abusive resident]. The police officers arrived at the facility at 5:30 PM and spoke with [all family members]. The report did not indicate anything about a table being pushed which was mentioned only in the Incident Report and was witnessed by [a family member].”
