- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date March 22, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to implement their Abuse Policy by requiring the facility to report an allegation of misappropriation.”
The surveyors reviewed a Nursing Progress Note dated March 1, 2019, at 7:31 PM. The note indicated that at approximately 11:00 AM, “therapy staff found a bank card on the resident’s bathroom floor and then gave the card to the nurse on duty.” The “resident returned to the facility and stated that someone had stolen her card and took $200 off of it.”
A Nursing Progress Note from the same day at 3:55 PM revealed that the resident “talked about money being stolen. Further review of the Progress Note revealed the issues were addressed by the previous shift.”
However, a review of self-reported incidents at the facility from March 1, 2019, through March 21, 2019, “revealed that there were no reports of misappropriation involving [that resident].” The investigators interviewed the facility Administrator on the morning of March 22, 2019. The Administrator “revealed the allegation of misappropriation was not reported to the State Agency [stating] no money was missing.”
The resident and family revealed that “someone took $200.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) revealed that “the resident’s sister and herself looked at the bank transaction online [revealing that] there was $120 cash withdrawal from the bank in which the family did not know who withdrew the money.”
The LPN revealed that “she reported the $120 withdrawal to the Unit Manager.” A different Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) was the Unit Manager on duty on the day of the incident and stated that “she reported the situation to the Administrator [but] could not recall [the other LPN] informing her of the disputed $120 transaction on the bank card.”
The investigators determined that “the facility failed to report an allegation of misappropriation” and failed to follow the Abuse Prohibition Policy revised on January 1, 2018. The policy indicates that “staff must report allegations involving neglect, exploitation, or mistreatment and misappropriation of resident property within twenty-four hours if the event does not result in serious bodily injury.”
