- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date June 4, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement their policy and procedure for immediately removing an accused abuser from the care of residents after an allegation of abuse.” This failure “had the potential to place residents at risk for abuse.”
The state investigators interviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who stated that she heard the resident “yelling at a Licensed Vocational Nurse on May 11, 2019 around 11:00 AM.” The CNA said that “she walked toward the resident’s bed and witnessed the Licensed Vocational Nurse placed her forearm on the resident’s chest (restraining her arm) and administer medicated cream to the resident’s nostril.”
The CNA stated that the resident “yelled that she wanted to call the police on the Licensed Vocational Nurse.” The CNA said that “she reported the incident to her Charge Nurse [and said that] after the allegation was made, the Licensed Vocational Nurse continued to work on the same nursing unit for the remainder of their shift.”
The surveyors interviewed the Charge Nurse who stated that he had spoken with the resident about the incident and she said the Licensed Vocational Nurse “assaulted her by holding her down and placing something in her nose.” The Charge Nurse said that “he did not remove or prevent the Licensed Vocational Nurse from working with other residents.” The Charge Nurse confirmed that the Licensed Vocational Nurse “continued to provide care for her assigned residents in need of treatment.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) stated that they had spoken to the resident and confirmed the allegation of abuse. The RN said that “he did not follow the facility policy and procedure for abuse [regarding] removing the staff accused of abuse.” The RN confirmed that the Licensed Vocational Nurse “continued to work and provide treatment to other residents on the same nursing unit for the rest of her shift.”
The investigator interviewed the Clinical Nurse Officer who stated “the staff did not file their policy and procedure for abuse” that reads in part: “the facility will report all allegations of abuse, as required by law, and regulations to the appropriate agencies within two hours.” The facility “properly and thoroughly investigates reports of resident abuse, mistreatment, neglect, exploitation, misappropriation of resident property, or injuries of unknown source when appropriate. If the suspected perpetrator is an employee, remove the employee immediately from the care of the residents and immediately suspend the employee, pending the outcome of the investigation [according to] facility policies.”
