- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date August 15, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility did not ensure that all alleged violations involving mistreatment, neglect, or abuse, including injuries of an unknown source, and misappropriation of resident property, were reported to officials [by] State law through established procedures.” The incident involved four residents “reviewed [who] had issues where the facility did not report incidents of unauthorized social media pictures of three residents taken by the staff to the New York State Department of Health.”
In one incident, the New York State Department of Health “received an anonymous a complaint on the Automated Complaint Tracking System” alleging that “an anonymous individual reported that yesterday three staff members including two housekeepers “had a resident in the tub, sprayed shaving cream on the resident’s genitals and Snapchatted it on their phone. The administration told the staff not to say anything and that it needed to stay in-house.”
The Director of Nursing provided a written statement regarding the allegation after being approached by the former Administrator, the Director of Housekeeping, and a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Union Representative. The Director of Housekeeping had informed the Director of Nursing that one CNA who was formally a housekeeper “had received a Snapchat picture of the male resident with shaving cream on his genitals via her cell phone from [another CNA]. The picture had no face.”
The third CNA (formally a housekeeper) had reported this to the Director of Housekeeping. The first reporting CNA stated she had also “received a picture of [the resident] taken inappropriately, and a picture of [another resident] dancing in his room” sent by the abusive CNA. The allegedly abusive CNA “denied taking any pictures of residents.”
