The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to submit three 5-day working reports to the Health Care Personnel Registry timely for [three residents] reviewed for misappropriation of property.” One case involved three residents who were “alert and oriented and with no short or long-term memory problems.”
A review of records indicated that three residents had “accused the receptionist of taking money from their accounts without their permission. The incident was reported to the local police department on July 21, 2016, at 5:00 PM for all three allegations by administrative staff.”
An initial 24-hour report was submitted to the proper state authorities the following day and the follow-up 5-working day reports for all three allegations “were due to be submitted on July 28, 2016, but were not submitted until July 29, 2016” after the initial time allowed by law had passed. The facility Administrator stated that “his expectation was for both the 24-hour and 5-day report to be reported timely.”
The nursing home “failed to provide sufficient nursing staff to meet the needs of residents by not providing residents’ showers and oral care.” Based on record reviews and interviews with staff members and residents, “the facility failed to resolve grievances regarding showers.”
