- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date April 10, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to follow through with facility policy and procedure guidelines for handling suspected incidents of abuse toward two residents.”
The Facility Generated Report revealed that, at 1:00 AM, a resident reported to a Licensed Nurse Aide (LNA) that another LNA “was very rough with [getting] the resident up and out of bed very rapidly and seemed angry.” A reported at 2:45 AM the same morning indicated that the allegedly abusive resident came into another resident’s room and “ripped the blankets off of [the resident, who informed them that they] appeared angry. When [the allegedly abusive LNA] re-approached the resident, the resident informed [them] that ‘if you are angry, I do not want you touching me.’”
The state investigators reviewed the personnel files of both Licensed Nurse Aides. Each had “no prior allegations of abuse.” Each Aide had participated in a training session for abuse prohibition and had attended a training session for Preventing and Responding to Abuse.” The Center Executive Director documented in the investigation note that “both alleged abuse incidents that occurred” between 1:00 AM and 2:45 AM were revealed in the report.
The Director stated that at this point, one Licensed Nurse Aide told the allegedly aggressive Aide that “two residents a complaint about them and that they] needed to go home now.” The reporting Licensed Nursing Aide encouraged [the allegedly aggressive aide] to leave the building right now. I will tell the nurse [that] you needed to go.”
The document shows that the nurse in charge of the floor was on a break and that the allegedly aggressive Aide “left the building and went home around 4:00 AM.” The Center Nurse Executive and Nurse Practice Executive revealed that the allegedly aggressive resident “did not exit the facility until 4:00 AM.” Also, “the supervising nurse was not made aware of the incident until a return from a break at 4:15 AM.”
The administration was “notified by the supervising nurse after the exit from the facility of [the allegedly abusive Aide].” The surveyors asked both Directors “if the facility Licensed Nurse Aides had the ability to send staff home when there is an allegation of abuse from the resident’s and the Charge Nurse was not made aware of the allegations [before] staff leaving.” Both Directors answered, ‘No.’
