- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date July 11, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report allegations of abuse and misconduct for [two residents]. This deficient practice resulted in a delay of reporting allegations of abuse and the potential to place [two residents] at risk for further harm.” The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who stated during an interview that “a male Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) closed the door, went to his roommate’s bedside, drew the curtains, and was doing something to [that resident], and then approached and stated to [this resident], ‘do not say anything, you will be next.’”
The reporting resident stated “he was worried that the CNA was harming the other resident.” The reporting resident’s family member said that their loved one had reported the CNA “came into his room at 3:00 AM to 4:00 AM and asked him if he was gay.” The family member stated on April 19, 2018, that she reported to the “Director of Nursing both allegations of abuse by the CNA.”
Later that day, the Director of Nursing stated that a family member had “reported that an individual entered [the resident’s room] and asked him if he was gay and the individual shook the resident’s footboard of the bed frame.” The resident reported “that someone was choking his roommate in the hours of 3:00 AM to 4:00 AM [stating that the family member and the resident’s] allegations were reported to the ombudsman and the Director of Nursing did not state that the allegations were reported to the Department of Public Health.”
The investigators reviewed the roommate’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicating that this resident “had short-term and long-term memory problems.” The facility investigation report showed “the reason for the investigation was due to an allegation of abuse as reported by [the family member].”
