- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date April 16, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement their facility’s policy and procedures to ensure the safety and prevent abuse of [two residents] by not documenting the change in condition and not notifying the primary Physician regarding the resident-to-resident altercation.” These deficient practices had the potential to subject the residents to further abuse and cause mental or physical harm.
One resident “was unable to recall the altercation incident with [the other resident] and thought he was in the hospital.” The first resident stated that “he was scared and verbalized, ‘any time, anybody can poke me with a knife.’”
The other resident stated that the first resident “got upset because [they told their roommate to turn down the sound volume] of his television in their shared room.” The resident “stated that he also got offended because [the other resident] said, ‘if you are the boss of this place, then you can give orders,’ and verbalized a racial slur.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “she was giving medications to residents on December 17, 2018, at around 6:30 AM, when [the first resident told her the second resident had hit him and wanted to call the police.” The nurse stated that “upon assessment, [the second resident] was inconsistent, stating the exact location where [the first resident] supposedly hit him on the face.”
The Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “she observed a 0.5 cm scratch on the left side of [the second resident’s] nose bridge.” However, the nurse said that “she did not document a Change in Condition note for [both residents and said that] she did not notify either of [the residents]’ Physicians regarding the altercation incident.”
A review of the medical records by the Medical Records Director indicated that “there was no Change in Condition entry for [either resident] and no documentation of the Physician be notified regarding the resident-to-resident altercation.” The Assistant Director of Nursing stated that “there should have been a Change in Condition note for [both residents] and their primary Physicians should have been notified [regardless] of the outcome of the incident/abuse investigation because the Physicians should be aware of the condition of the residents and be able to intervene immediately, if needed.”
