- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date September 1, 2016
According to state investigators, “it was determined [for one resident] reviewed for falls, the facility did not ensure all alleged violations involving mistreatment, neglect, or abuse were thoroughly investigated.” Specifically, for one resident, “thorough and complete fall investigations were not done to determine if the Care Plan was followed and to prevent a recurrence, and on multiple occasions, the resident’s Care Plan was not followed.”
A review of the resident’s updated comprehensive Care Plan documented that “the resident was at risk for falls due to a history of falls/unsteady gait (manner of walking). Interventions included toileting the resident every two hours and ‘as needed (PRN)’,placing a Dycem in the wheelchair or lounge chair to prevent him from sliding down.”
An incident report documented at 4:45 AM on June 10, 2016, noted that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “found the resident on the toilet after she responded to his bed alarm. The CNA left the resident in the bathroom to change his sheets and told him to stay on the toilet. When she turned her back for a minute, the resident fell off the toilet.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) assessed the resident after finding the resident “face down in the threshold of the bathroom door with a large amount of blood coming from his nose.” The RN stated that “the bridge of his nose was red and swollen, and his right eyebrow was reddened.”
A subsequent Incident Report dated on July 12, 2016, indicated that the resident “was sitting in the recliner in the dining room when he slid out and fell to the floor. The report documented the resident was last toileted four hours and twenty five minutes before the accident, and the Care Plan was followed as written.”
