- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date February 11, 2019
- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date February 11, 2019
According to state surveyors, “the facility did not ensure that an alleged violation involving abuse was reported to the New York State Department of Health with an acceptable time frame. Specifically, the facility did not report an allegation of verbal abuse by a resident to the [Department of Health]” within 24 hours as required by law.
The surveyors interviewed a resident who stated that “he was sitting in the Main Dining Room doing some coloring during activities sometime before lunch was served. A Physical Therapist Assistant came into the [dining room] and requested the resident give him his wheelchair because the resident had completed a physical therapy program and the Rehabilitation Department wanted to use a wheelchair for another resident.”
At that time, the resident refused, and the physical therapist Assistant said: “f*** you.” The Physical Therapist Assistant then turned to another resident sitting at the table and told her to ‘get out of my face.’ No other staff members were close enough to hear the conversation.”
The reporting resident “initially stated that he was unsure of who to report the incident to since [they have] never had a situation like this happen to him while a resident in the facility.” The resident stated that “he will report this incident to the appropriate staff member in the administration and initiate the grievance/abuse investigation procedure.”
The nursing home “did not ensure that an alleged violation involving abuse was reported to the New York State Department of Health within the acceptable time frame. Specifically, the facility did not report an allegation of verbal abuse by a resident” timely. The law indicates that the violation must be reported to the Department of Health “within two hours after forming suspicion.”
