- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date September 13, 2018
According to state investigators, “it was determined that for two of six residents reviewed for abuse, the facility did not thoroughly investigate incidents to rule out abuse, neglect, or mistreatment. The issues involved the lack of a thorough investigation of the skin tear and hematoma [for a resident] and a lack of a thorough investigation for a resident who reported that another resident threw her on the floor.”
The survey team reviewed the Incident/Incident Report, dated May 27, 2018. The document revealed that “the resident had an unobserved incident resulting in a skin tear to her right arm and a right lower extremity hematoma (the collection of clotted blood within the tissues causing swelling).” The description stated that a Licensed Nurse documented “that when the resident was asked what happened, she responded, ‘I was mishandled.’”
The document included that “the resident was sent to the hospital via ambulance” on that date “for draining of the hematoma. The investigation provided by the facility included statements from two licensed nurses and three Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) working during the shift at the time of the incident. There was no resident’s statement of the events leading up to the incident included in the investigation.”
The surveyors documented that “the investigation summary/conclusion revealed that the incident resulted in an injury, that the cause of the injury was unknown, that abuse, neglect, or mistreatment could be ruled out, and the incident was not reported to the Department of Health.” However, “there was no reasonable cause for the injuries identified in the investigation.”
According to statements by two CNAs who were assisting the resident and noticed a knot on the resident’s lower right leg, it was stated that “the resident was upset and cursing. Both statements noted that the resident was yelling, screaming, and throwing things [before] the incident.” A Registered Nurse (RN) to assess the resident indicated that a skin tear to the right proximal forearm was “caused by trauma.”
