- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date August 1, 2019
- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date October 24, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide adequate supervision [to one resident who] wandered outside of the facility and fell. This failure resulted in the resident sustaining a bruised knee and had the potential for a more serious injury.”
A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated the resident was “at risk for falls and contained interventions that included ‘needs a safe environment.’”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated January 17, 2019, the facility “failed to ensure [one resident] received one-on-one supervision to prevent an accident, as required by his Care Plan. This failure resulted in [the resident] falling and sustaining a head injury.” The investigation involved a resident who was “unsteady and only able to stabilize with staff assistance for balance during transitions and walking.”
Documentation shows that the resident had been on one-on-one monitoring for safety and was reported “to have an unwitnessed fall on the p.m. shift and sustained a linear laceration to the left side of the forehead, measuring 2.0 cm above the left ear with moderate bleeding.” The nursing staff “sent the resident out to the emergency room for further evaluation and treatment.”
The nursing home “failed to monitor [one resident] and maintain a safe environment” for another resident when the first resident inappropriately touched the second resident. This “failure had the potential to cause [the second resident] physical and psychosocial harm.”
An Activity Assistant stated that she was working on the day of the incident when one resident inappropriately touched another resident. The Activities Assistant reported the incident to management, saying that a male resident “had his left-hand underneath [the female resident’s] shirt, fondling her right breast.” The staff member said that they “did not witness the abuse because [they had their] back turned while baking cookies for the resident."
