- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date October 14, 2016
The state investigators determined “the facility did not ensure all alleged violations involving mistreatment, neglect, or abuse were reported immediately to the Administrator at the facility and thoroughly investigated. Specifically, [two residents] were subject to inappropriate advances by another resident, and investigations were not completed to identify the root cause or prevent a recurrence.”
In one incident, an abusive resident “had multiple inappropriate interactions with other residents that were not investigated.” One resident had a “fall, and a complete and thorough investigation was not completed.” A third resident “made an allegation of abuse against a staff member, and the allegation was not investigated timely, and the resident was not protected from the accused staff member while the investigation was pending.”
Another incident involved a resident who “had two falls, and the facility reported the incident to the New York State Department of Health as they could not determine whether the resident’s Care Plan was followed. The facility did not suspend the two acute Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) while the investigation was pending.”
A review of the Supplementary Statement Form documented by the Director of Nursing stated she interviewed the resident and stated that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “was always professional and courteous.” In one incident, another resident yelled at the LPN and “used foul language toward her on March 4, 2016.”
An Incident Report Form was initiated on March 28, 2016, and “documented it was an investigation into possible abuse toward the resident on March 4, 2016.” The investigation included a written statement by the LPN documented on the following day (March 5, 2016) which documents that “[the day before] she went into the resident’s room with [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)]. The resident yelled at them, was thrashing in the bed, and his remote control fell to the ground.”
At some point, the resident told the LPN he was, “going to kill her,” and she said, “‘Really? you can’t even stand!’ She documented she picked up the remote control, place it on the bed, and slammed the door when she left the room.”
The resident he accused the LPN of throwing a remote control, “which hit his operative leg.” The CNA stated that the “remote control never touched the resident’s knee, and [the LPN] did not throw it.”
