- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date June 21, 2019
- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date June 21, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report, within twenty-four hours, the alleged incident of abuse that occurred for [one resident]. This failure increased the potential to impede or compromise the protection of residents.”
A complainant stated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) allegedly “flicked her mother’s mouth and told her to, ‘shut up.’ The Complainant further stated that she reported the alleged abuse incident to [a Licensed Nurse] and the Director of Staff Development on March 5, 2019.”
The resident stated that “she used the call light to ask for help, but sometimes they do not come, so she keeps calling them.” The resident further stated that the CNA “‘flicked my lips two times,’ and told her to stop talking, ‘keep quiet.’” The resident said that “she felt upset, angry, and the flicking of her lips was painful. Additionally, [the resident stated,] ‘I do not want the CNA taking care of me.’”
The state investigators interviewed the Licensed Nurse who indicated “she discussed the alleged abuse incident with [the resident] on March 7, 2019.” The nurse admitted, “that she did not document the investigation and no report was filed with the Department.” Additionally, the Director of Staff Development stated that “the complainant had discussed the alleged abuse incident with her [on] March 6, 2019.”
The Director further stated that “she did not file a follow-up report with the Department.” The Director of Nursing said “we only document investigations and file a [report] if the incident is substantiated. The Director acknowledged that no investigation and no report was filed with the Department because it (the incident) was unsubstantiated.”
The “facility failed to implement safeguards to prevent further potential abuse for [one resident] when the facility did not maintain documentation that an alleged violation was thoroughly investigated and staff continued to have access to [the resident’s] room while the investigation of an alleged violation was in progress.”
The state surveyors determined that “this failure had increased the potential to impede or compromise the protection of residents.” The complaint further inquired, “why did they let [the CNA] still work in the same room?”
