- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date July 11, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide documentation [that] a complete investigation had been conducted for an allegation of abuse and reassigned or suspended the staff accused of the resident abuse, [according to] facility policy.”
The Facility-Reported Incident, documented on June 3, 2019, revealed that Elder Protective Services came to the facility and spoke with a Licensed Social Worker and [the resident].”
The resident had reported that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had pushed him/her “on the bed and hit [his/her] head. Upon investigation, [the resident] reported after physical therapy, a female staff member unintentionally fell on top of [them] when the staff member transferred [them] back to bed, with two male staff and [a] doctor present.”
The Administrator told the surveyors that “a staff member involved in the allegation of abuse should have been suspended, pending an investigation. The staff and the resident involved in the alleged abuse incident were interviewed. Other residents were interviewed about the staff involved and if the staff had witnessed the alleged abuse incident. All interviews and investigation processes should have been documented.”
The Administrator stated that “the facility became aware of the allegations by the resident on May 30, 2019.” The administration interviewed the resident about the incident. The “staff who took care of the [resident] were interviewed. There were no other residents interviewed because [the resident’s] allegations were an isolated incident.”
The Administrator said that the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “mentioned in the Facility-Reported Incident, who allegedly pushed [the resident] on the bed, was not suspended. The Administrator acknowledged interviews conducted with staff, and [the victim] should have been documented.”
The Administrator told the surveyors that “a conclusion was made on [the day of the incident about an employee] not involved in the alleged incident. The investigation was completed [four days later. The employee] was not reassigned to another unit nor suspended pending the investigation.”
The Administrator confirmed that “there were no witness reports in writing, signed, and dated, per policy. The Administrator should have maintained copies of witness reports [and] acknowledged there was no completed investigation of [the resident’s] allegation because there was no documentation of witness statements.”
