- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation date August 15, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure allegations of verbal and physical abuse were reported immediately to the Administrator.”
The facility administration asked the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “to clock out and go home on July 14, 2018, after an episode of the alleged abuse.” The resident “was “heard to be making repeated verbalizations when [the CNA] approached her and covered the resident’s mouth with her hand.”
Documentation shows that the CNA told the resident to “shut the f--k up.” The Assistant Director of Nursing “was immediately notified of the abuse allegations.” Another staff member stated during the investigation that they heard the CNA “was verbally abusive toward the resident [saying] ‘I heard the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) [had] told the Assistant Director of Nursing, and maybe the Director of Nursing, but nothing was done. I am unsure if the Administrator knew about it.’”
A third staff member stated during the investigation that they heard the CNA “was fired for abuse. It is just hearsay. I am not sure what she did.” The Director of Nursing stated on the evening of August 14, 2018, that “she was unaware of any alleged abuse for the past three months. She was unaware a CNA was sent home due to the alleged abuse.” The Director indicated that “she was unaware a CNA was sent home due to the alleged abuse.”
A few minutes later, the Assistant Director of Nursing stated that “she was unaware of any alleged abuse for the past three months [indicating that] she was unaware the CNA was sent home due to the alleged abuse.”
The following morning at 10:15 AM, the Director of Nursing indicated that the allegedly abusive CNA was still an employee at the facility.” The Administrator stated a few minutes later that “she was unaware of any alleged abuse for the past three months [and that] she had not been informed any staff members had been sent home for alleged abuse.”
The Administrator indicated that “she would immediately send a report to the Indiana State Department of Health and begin an investigation.”
