- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date January 22, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure a resident’s family member and Physician were notified after an allegation of abuse.” The facility reported an incident, dated September 10, 2018, indicating that a resident “was potentially abused by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).”
After the incident, “a Registered Nurse (RN) confirmed that there was no documentation in [the resident’s] medical record that the Physician or family member were notified after an allegation of abuse was made.” This deficient practice involved a failure to follow the facility’s Abuse Prevention Program that indicated that “all alleged violations involving abuse will be reported to the resident’s Attending Physician and the resident’s representative on record.”
- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date January 22, 2019
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date June 6, 2019
The “facility failed to ensure [a] documented internal investigation was completed after an allegation of abuse.” A Social Worker at the facility indicated that the Director of Nursing and the Administrator “would be notified after an allegation of abuse and an internal investigation would take place. The Social Worker explained that the investigation would be documented on a Grievance Form and updated in the incident log.”
However, the Director of Nursing indicated that they were unaware of the abuse allegation listed above. The Director “contacted the Night Nurse Supervisor who indicated an investigation was completed but was not documented.”
The Director acknowledged that “there was no documentation of the incident.”
The nursing home “failed to operate a battery-powered patient lift per the manufacturer’s user manual.” Two Certified Nursing Assistants and a Certified Respiratory Therapist transferred the resident to a geriatric chair, using a battery-powered lift. The Therapist held the ventilator tubes and the resident “was transferred to the geriatric chair” when the Certified Nursing Assistant failed to “spread the base legs of the battery-powered lift [before transferring].”
The CNA confirmed that “there should be two staff members when operating the battery-powered lift.” The employees lifted the resident. The resident confirmed “being transferred” and “did not feel safe [while being] transferred by some staff members. Sometimes only one staff operates the battery-powered lift.”
