- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date April 26, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure allegations of abuse were reported by facility staff as mandated by law [according to] the facility’s policy and procedures on abuse. A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) reported, on her last day of employment, witnessing an alleged abuse by [another CNA toward five residents] from the last seven years ago to the present.”
The surveyors determined that “this failure had the potential for residents to be abused by staff with no investigation and preventative measures of protection from the facility, which can result in harm.” The investigative team interviewed the facility Administrator who indicated that the CNA “was retiring and wanted to clear the air before leaving.” The CNA reported to the Administrator “five separate abuse allegation incidents against [one specific CNA] involving five residents.”
The Administrator indicated that the reporting CNA, another CNA, and a Licensed Nurse were all interviewed on January 9, 2019 “about the abuse allegations.” The reporting CNA “indicated in the interview that between three days to possibly seven years ago” another CNA called a resident “white trash when the CNA was looking for [that resident].”
The reporting CNA indicated another CNA had reported the allegedly abusive Certified Nursing Assistant changing the same resident’s brief when the resident “cussed out loud.” At that time, the allegedly abusive CNA “verbally responded with inappropriate words.”
The reporting Certified Nursing Assistant also said that a third CNA had witnessed the allegedly abusive Certified Nursing Assistant spit in a second resident’s face. However, no CNA’s reported the abuse incident to the administration but only to each other. Allegedly, the abusive CNA also forcefully grabbed another resident.
The state investigators found that there were “no records located in the abuse log regarding the incident involving [the allegedly aggressive CNA with five different residents between] four to seven years ago.” No evidence was located in the records concerning the reporting CNA had notified the administration of any of the incidents.
