The state investigators determined the nursing home “failed to ensure the resident was free from mistreatment.” This investigation involved a resident who smoked, with interventions directed to “supervise smoking and observe for signs of unsafe smoking.”
A Nurse’s Note dated November 15, 2018, identified that at 2:45 PM that day a staff member “was called to the nurse’s station by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and observed [the resident] with blood running down the left side of his/her face and an abrasion over the left eye. The resident reported that he/she was hit in the face by staff. The supervisor was notified and performed an assessment.”
The facility Incident Report and Investigation from the same date identified a housekeeper “had notified the Nurse Supervisor that [the resident] had a cigarette on his/her person. After [the housekeeper reported the resident] had a cigarette, [the resident] sought out the housekeeper and found him washing floors in the dining room.”
The surveyors reviewed the surveillance video of the resident confronting the housekeeper. The resident made “an attempt to hit him. It was unclear if contact was made. However, the housekeeper stated he was hit first and reacted to the situation.” The housekeeper was terminated.
The nursing home facility “failed to ensure the resident did not have an unauthorized leave, or elope from the facility.” This investigation involved a resident with a “court-appointed conservator.”
A Nurse’s Note identified that “a local police department had called the facility to inform the facility that the resident was with his/her family member and the family member would be driving the resident back to the facility.” Upon return to the facility, the resident “was sent to the emergency department for evaluation, [according to] facility policy.”
