- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date March 13, 2019
- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date March 13, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure the required information in the facility policy for abuse, neglect, and exploitation protects all residents during their abuse investigation.”
The state investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing on March 13, 2019, who reviewed the policy and “confirmed that if the suspected abuser was a staff member, this policy does not indicate how residents in the facility would be protected during an abuse investigation.”
The facility “failed to submit the required five-day report to the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) for a suspected abuse allegation.” The state and federal laws require that “suspected abuse reporting is mandatory.”
The investigators reviewed a resident’s record that showed that “there was an allegation of abuse on February 24, 2019. The report showed [the Director of Nursing] did this investigation.”
An investigator review showed that “there was no documentation report indicating the facility submitted the required five-day Federal report to the Agency for Health Care Administration.”
The state surveyors interviewed the Director of Nursing who reviewed the investigative record for the resident and indicated that “this was an abuse investigation and confirmed that she did not send the five-day federal report.”
The facility did not follow their abuse policy for submitting the required reports to the AHCA” that reads in part, “the facility will report all alleged violations and all substantiated incidents to the appropriate State agencies as required and will take all necessary corrective actions depending on the result of the investigation.”
