- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date January 24, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement or follow the Abuse Policy in the area of reporting [for a resident] who had an allegation of abuse.” The investigation involved a resident who “had one fall with no injuries since his last MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment” who received “antipsychotic medications, anti-anxiety medications, and antidepressant medications each day.”
A handwritten note from the Evening Supervisor dated January 15, 2018, revealed that a family member of the resident “had come to the facility at approximately 11:05 PM.” The note indicated that the family member had informed the Evening Supervisor that “she planned to meet with the Administrator in the morning to inform her that she had been informed [that a Nursing Aide] had been mean to [the resident] and had hit him.”
The Evening Supervisor then documented that she had removed the Nurse Aide from the assignment of the resident “for that night. She then documented her interviews with two nurses in which both nurses stated that [the resident] had had behaviors and had felt it may have been related to a recent medication dose reduction.”
The Team Supervisor stated that a specific Nurse Aide “was working at the facility at the time the allegation was made and had been assigned to [the resident]. The Evening Supervisor stated that [the Nurse Aide] denied having abused the resident, but she had not had an in-depth conversation with her about the allegation. She stated she changed [the Nurse Aide’s] assignment so she would not be responsible for care for [that resident].”
However, the Nurse Aide “remained working in the facility.” Both the Administrator and the Director of Nursing revealed that “they had received the information regarding the allegation involving [the resident and the Nurse Aide].”
