- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date June 24, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that an injury of unknown origin was reported for [one resident] and failed to conduct a thorough investigation into an allegation of physical abuse for [another resident].”
The investigative team reviewed one resident’s Clinical Record and Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment. Documentation indicates that the resident “had an acute left anterior shoulder dislocation, with bruising noted, diffusely to the left shoulder. The Progress Note further documented the resident was non-verbal, non-mobile, and bed-bound.”
As a result of the injuries, “the medical provider ordered the resident to be transferred to the hospital for evaluation and treatment to rule out shoulder fractures.”
The Director of Nursing verified that the resident had been assessed and suffered “an injury of unknown origin [and that the case] should have been reported to the State Agency and it was not.” The Director stated that “she thought the medical provider had documented the injury as a spontaneous injury.”
The investigation involved an interview with a Registered Nurse (RN) who stated that upon entering the resident’s room, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that “the resident’s arm and shoulder appeared [to be] loose.” The Registered Nurse stated that “she then notified the medical provider on-call and received orders for x-rays.”
The RN indicated that she had assessed the resident to identify pain but that the resident did not seem to be in any discomfort or pain. The Registered Nurse reviewed the resident’s medical records but had not received a report “from the previous shift of any unusual occurrences with [the resident].”
A separate incident was identified in a complaint where a resident “made an allegation of physical abuse by a staff member of the facility.” The resident indicated that “she had been slapped by a staff [members, and that she] immediately reported [the incident] to the Director of Nursing and Assistant Director of Nursing. However, the incident had not been reported as required by law to the State Agency and other appropriate agencies.
