These agencies have the authority to impose monetary penalties or hold payment from Medicare if the nursing facility has violated rules and regulations. Typically, the more serious the violation, the higher the monetary fines, especially if neglect or abuse caused harm or could have caused harm to a resident.

- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date August 28, 2018

The state investigative team documented that “the facility did not report allegations of possible misappropriation to the New York State Department of Health. These issues involved allegations of misappropriation of resident televisions.”
A review of the resident’s Electrical Equipment Log revealed that one resident “had an Element TV and [another resident] had a TCL TV inspected on April 20, 2018.” However, the Missing Property Investigation documentation dated May 8, 2018, “concluded that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) reported [one resident’s] TV was missing to the Director of Maintenance who begin an investigation. It was determined that the TV was not removed for repair by maintenance and it was last seen the previous evening.”
The facility “completed a check of the other resident rooms and found [another resident’s] TV was missing from her room. Statements from staff members included the resident’s television “was last seen around 10:00 PM on May 7, 2018.”
The resident’s bedroom window “was found open the next morning when it is usually not. The facility cameras were reviewed. However, they were not pointed at the resident rooms, and the only staff entering it and leaving the unit and employee exits were able to be reviewed.”
The nursing home “did not provide the necessary care and services to maintain the resident’s personal hygiene. Issues involved the lack of hearing aids, clean clothes, and clean glasses [for one resident] and the lack of nail care [for that resident and another resident].”
During an interview with the Registered Nurse Manager, it was revealed that “nail care should be done at least weekly with showers and as needed. She said that while it should be done on shower days, she could not guarantee that it was getting done.”
