- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date May 9, 2019
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 17, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the abuse allegations were reported to the California Department of Public Health [within twenty-four hours] of the observation, knowledge, or suspicion of the abuse for [two residents].”
Specifically, “the facility failed to report the alleged verbal abuse of [one resident toward another resident and failed to] report the alleged physical abuse of [a third resident harming a fourth resident].” These deficient practices “failed to protect the residents allegedly abused and imposed the risk of further abuse to other residents.”
In one case, a resident said that another patient “was treating her bad and used offensive language while she was passing by [that patient’s] room.” The verbally assaulted resident said that “she could not remember the date or time when it happened [but said that] she told the Administrator and Social Services on April 5, 2019.”
The facility failed to ensure that two residents “had adequate supervision to prevent a fall.” One resident “fell from bed while receiving care from a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). This [failure] posed a risk for further falls for the resident.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the moderately cognitively impaired resident “was at risk for falls and had poor decision-making [processes and required] cues and supervision.” The resident “sustained a fall from bed with no injuries” on July 27, 2018. Again, on September 12, 2017, the resident sustained another fall from bed while a Certified Nursing Assistant “was providing care to her.”
The Progress Note indicated that the resident “rolled off the bed and onto the floor. The staff documented that the fall was witnessed by a resident’s family member.” The CNA said that “she had finished providing care to [the resident] when she turned away from the resident to grab a blanket.” At that time, the resident “slid off the bed onto the floor.”
The resident “did complain of pain to the back of her head.” The nursing staff transferred the resident back to the bed and notified the physician, who ordered to transfer [the resident] “to the Acute Care Hospital Emergency Department for evaluation.”
