- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation date #F600 August 7, 2018
According to state investigators, “it was determined the facility did not ensure that residents were free from neglect related to incontinence care.” The nursing home also “failed to ensure that residents were free from neglect.”
The state surveyors reviewed a resident’s clinical record and MDS (Minimum Data Set) that identified the resident as requiring “two or more physical assistance from staff.” The resident’s Plan of Care provided by the facility revealed that “the resident was incontinent of urine with the potential for improving control or management of urinary elimination.”
The staff was guided with interventions to reinforce successful continence by providing access to the bathroom upon awakening, after meals, as needed and nightly. However, reviewing the investigation into an allegation of neglect revealed the resident “was found in her room by the Nursing Supervisor and Charge Nurse with a wet brief and a wet dress.” The resident’s needs stated that her aunt “had not been changed since 9:00 AM.”
The investigation found that the Nursing Assistant assigned to the resident “reported that she provided incontinence care to the resident at 9:00 AM and 12:45 PM. However, the Nursing Aides said that they “did not provide any additional incontinence care to the resident because she could not find a mechanical lift that the resident was required to use during transfers or any batteries for the mechanical lift.”
The Director of Nursing interviewed the employee who stated that “she did not notify the Nursing Supervisor, Charge Nurse, or the Unit Manager that she could not locate a mechanical lift or any batteries.”
That employee ended her shift at 3:00 PM but “started another assignment in the facility for which he was scheduled to work from 3:00 PM until 11:00 PM.” The investigation concluded that “the allegation regarding neglect was substantiated” after interviews have been conducted with residents and staff members.
