- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date May 2, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to protect the rights of the resident to be free from abuse and neglect by not providing goods and services necessary to avoid physical harm, pain, mental anguish, or emotional distress.”
The survey team reviewed a resident’s clinical record and Admission MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment. Documentation indicated that “the office of the ambulance company had called the facility at 9:30 AM and reported to the Charge Nurse at the ambulance have been in an accident while bringing [the resident] back to the facility from [medical treatment].”
At that time, the resident “had been sent to the emergency room for lumbar (lower) back pain, and [the resident] returned at 9:15 PM that evening.”
The Facility Investigation revealed one witness statement from the emergency medical technician “who had been riding in the ambulance with the resident who was on a stretcher.” The technician stated that “the driver seemed to be driving inappropriately, he made a wide turn and needed to gather himself afterward. He got out of the [vehicle] for thirty seconds, then got back in.”
The EMT indicated that “after pulling off, I noticed that the ambulance worker, I thought of it has nothing, the next thing that happened was the crash.”
The police arrived at the scene of the accident and took the driver into custody. The “documentation indicated that the Ambulance Company Supervisor stated to the facility Director of Nursing that the police report suspected the driver was driving under the influence.”
The investigators noted that “there was no evidence available for review at the time of the survey that the [mandatory notification] had been submitted or that other state and local agencies had been notified as required.” The Nursing Home Administrator stated during an interview that the reports were not done because the “driver was not an employee at the facility.”
