- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date February 6, 2017
The state investigators determined that the facility “failed to ensure that an allegation of mistreatment was investigated timely in accordance with facility policy.” The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “was dependent on staff for mobility, transfers, and activities of daily living.”
A review of a Nurse’s Note identified the resident stated that they were “refusing ear drops to the left ear because the pain was in his/her right ear.” At that time, the Registered Nurse (RN) “instructed the resident that the order was clearly for the left ear.” The documentation shows that the resident would be reassessed.
The Reportable Event Form identified that “a staff member reported that a license staff member was observed holding the resident’s face and forcefully administering ear drops to the resident despite the resident’s request not to.” Reports indicated that a Nurse Aide informed the Director of Nursing that they had witnessed an LPN “administering ear drops to the resident despite the resident’s refusal.”
That Nurse Aide was interviewed by the nursing team indicating that he saw an LPN at the resident’s bedside, “starting to put ear drops in the resident’s ear.” The Aide indicated that the resident told the LPN “that it was the other ear that he should be putting them in.” The Nurse Aide stated that the resident asked the LPN “to put the drops in the other ear, but the LPN told the resident he had to fill the order and proceeded to turn the resident head and put the drops in even though the resident said not to.”
The Nurse Aide stated that the resident asked to see the supervisor.” The Nurse Aide informed the supervisor and gave a detailed description of his observation. However, the Nurse Aide stated that “he did not hear any more about the incident until about a month, or so, later and he gave the same statement to the Administrator.”
The Director of Nursing stated that she should have expected the Registered Nurse (RN) supervisor to initiate and report the allegation “of rough care” on the day that it was initially reported.
