- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date March 20, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to immediately report an alleged violation of abuse for [one allegation].” This allegation of abuse was not reported to include two residents.
The investigation involved one severely, cognitively impaired resident who “was observed sitting in a wheelchair in the main dining room. He was not alert and appeared to be asleep.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was tossing a ball to other residents and [this resident] was not engaged in the activity.
It was observed that “his fingernails were long and dirty and he was poorly groomed and unshaven.” On March 18, 2019, at 2:34 PM, “while attempting to do a record review, [the resident’s] medical chart could not be located. The Administrator indicated that the chart was with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCS) investigator.”
The Administrator stated that the “investigator was looking into the allegation of abuse regarding [this resident and another resident]. The Administrator had not been informed of the allegation until yesterday and the resident-to-resident incident occurred last week. The Administrator verified she was the Abuse Coordinator and that all allegations of abuse must be reported to her immediately.”
The Administrator indicated that the incident involved one resident hitting the other resident. The Administrator “indicated that she was still in the process of investigating what happened and why the staff did not immediately report the abuse allegation.”
The Assistant Director of Nursing provided a statement that said that the allegation was reported to them “by a family member, that she had witnessed [the resident] hit another resident (a little man with white hair).”
