- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date January 27, 2019

The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to report an abuse allegation to the Department of Public Health immediately or within two hours for [one resident]. This deficient practice had the potential to expose the residents in the facility to an environment of abuse and mistreatment.” As a result, the investigators made an unannounced visit “to the facility to investigate a complaint [involving a] facility-reported incident regarding an allegation of abuse.”
A Progress Note indicated that the resident’s family member had informed a Certified Nursing Assistant that the resident “reported being hit or slapped by another resident in the facility.” The CNA asked the resident “if it was true, but [the resident] did not say anything.”
The CNA informed the resident “that if someone hurts her, to report it immediately to the staff.” Although the family member had reported the incident to a Registered Nurse, they “did not want to report it to the Charge Nurse.”
The “facility failed to prevent possible cross-contamination, while performing wound care for [one resident], during a pressure sore dressing change. This deficient practice could result in cross-contamination, infections, and delay wound healing for [the resident].”
The survey team observed a pressure sore dressing change involving the resident with a Licensed Vocational Nurse. However, the nurse failed to follow established protocols when providing the care and did not properly clean the wound, which could lead to additional harm, a delay in healing, or cross-contamination.
