- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 22, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to thoroughly investigate an allegation of abuse for [three residents].” The state investigative team reviewed the resident’s records and found that the resident had “reported that her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) working on the 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM shift on August 3, 2017, was rude and rough with her when providing care.”
The survey team interviewed the Administrator who stated, “he investigated the allegation. He stated that the resident reported the allegation to a staff member, possibly a nurse. The Administrator stated he interviewed the nurse] a CNA, and the resident himself.”
The Administrator stated that “he did not have any evidence to show that the CNA was rough or rude.” The Administrator confirmed through the Social Services Director that the resident’s roommate “was alert and oriented.” The surveyors asked, “if any of the residents the CNA provided care for were interviewed.” The Administrator stated, “No.”
The Administrator also stated no when asked: “if any staff members that work with the employee, with the exception of the nurse on duty at the time, were interviewed.” The Administrator also acknowledged that “the facility was not aware that the resident was alleging harm until the Department of Children and Families (DCF) investigator came to the facility [and] informed them.”
By now, when the Social Services Staff attempted to interview the resident, “she could not give any information.” The Administrator “asked the nurse and the Unit Manager if the son had made any allegations, and they denied the son telling them anything.”
The Social Services Director stated that the son came to see his mom, and she “had a telephone across her lap and informed him she had a home invasion. He asked her what was going on and she informed him of the two girls that came in and roughed her up.”
At that time, the Social Services Director stated that they had spoken to the son and “informed him they would start an investigation. She informed him [the Administrator] would follow up with him.”
