- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date April 7, 2017
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date February 26, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility did not thoroughly investigate bruises of an unknown origin to rule out abuse, neglect or mistreatment.” The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “requires the extensive assistance of two staff for transfers.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Resident Care Plan directs “one assist for care and the use of a rolling walker.”
A review of the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan for Skin/Risk Factors included that the resident “bruises easily, will be free from preventable skin breakdown and pressure ulcers. Interventions include to monitor skin daily and to transfer per therapy recommendations.”
However, documentation revealed “a bruise was found on the resident’s right lower arm and left upper arm. The right arm bruise measured 10.0 cm x 7.0 cm and was dark blue in color. The left arm bruise measured 3.0 cm x 4.0 cm, and the color was not documented.”
The investigation involved an interview with the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who provided care on the 7:00 AM through 3:00 PM shift. The documentation shows that the “CNA found the skin tear during toileting and was not aware of any bruises. There are no additional staff interviews.”
The nursing home “did not ensure that a resident received adequate supervision to prevent potential accidents. Specifically, the resident eloped from the building through an unsecured exit door.”
The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “ambulates independently with a rolling walker. Documentation shows that the resident “was a high risk for elopement [wandering away].” The resident “was last seen at 8:30 PM by the nurse’s station and was found at 9:00 PM in the parking lot.”
A staff statement indicated that they had put the East Hall exit door on the bypass when a funeral home had arrived to pick up the body of a deceased resident and “forgot to reset the door alarm.”
