The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to investigate an allegation of neglect and report the results of the investigation to the State Survey Agency within five working days,” as required by law.
On September 5, 2019, during the morning hours, the resident “indicated requiring help from staff for mobility and hygiene care.” The resident reported that “staff did not provide care [timely].” The resident reported “trying not to poop out of fear he would not receive assistance.” The resident described “going up to twenty-four hours without care [and explained that] staff did not talk to him, and he felt ignored.”
The resident “recalled reporting the issue to a staff member but was not sure which staff member [and indicated that] the facility had not informed [him] of a response to the concern.”
The Director of Nursing indicated “being responsible for investigating and reporting allegations of abuse and neglect, in conjunction with the Administrator.” The Director indicated that “abuse allegations were investigated by interviews with staff and residents. The investigation was completed within five days of the notification.”
However, the Director verbalized that “the resident reported not having received incontinence care, lying wet and soiled for periods of up to three days.” The Director recalled the resident, “verbally reported an allegation of neglect during a care conference meeting.” The Director “was unable to provide documented evidence an investigation had been performed regarding [this resident’s] allegation.”
The “facility failed to ensure a Physician’s order to place the bed in the lowest position was performed for [one resident].” The Physician’s order documented that the bed would remain in the lowest position with floor mats on every shift, as a fall precaution.
However, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) confirmed that the resident “was a fall risk and there was an order for [keeping the bed in the lowest position] and using fall mats.” The LPN indicated that “if the fall intervention was not signed or documented, it was considered not done at all.”
The Director of Nursing explained that “staff was expected to follow the Physician’s orders [and confirmed] there was a fall prevention order for the bed in the lowest position and floor mats at the bedside and [it was] not signed in the Medication Administration Record for several occasions.”
