- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date February 9, 2018
According to state investigators, it was determined that “the facility did not ensure that all alleged violations involving abuse and neglect were investigated to rule out abuse/neglect and were reported to the New York State Department of Health as required.” Specifically, one resident “sustained a fall with injuries, and it was not reported to the [Department of Health] in a timely manner.”
Documentation shows of the resident “had a resident-to-resident altercation the facility did not report the incident” to the proper authorities. The incident involved a cognitively impaired resident who “sustained one fall with injury since the prior assessment.” The resident had a history of falls and “unsteady transfer/gait, generalized weakness, and dizziness.”
A Nursing Progress Note documented that the resident’s motion sensor alarm “sounded, the staff responded and found the resident on the floor on the right side of her bed, face down, lying on her right side.” At that time, the resident “had a right forehead hematoma, right shoulder bruising, and multiple right arm skin tears. The resident complained of lower back pain [and] was sent to the hospital for further evaluation.”
The documentation notes that the resident had, “fallen out of bed.” The surveyors interviewed the previous Director of Nursing, who stated, “he remembers the resident had a fall with injuries. He recalled the previous Administrator completing an investigation [stating it was the Administrator who] was responsible for notifying the New York State Department of Health.” The Director stated that “he knew if a Care Plan was not followed and the resident was injured it should be called into the [Department of Health] immediately.”
