- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date December 8, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility staff failed to investigate and report an injury of unknown origin.” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to investigate and report [one resident’s] May 4, 2016, fractured ankle of an unknown injury to the required State Agency.”
Additionally, “the facility staff failed to report a fracture of unknown origin (right femoral neck) to the required State Agency [promptly for another resident].”
The investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “requires assistance from staff for all activities of daily living.” The Resident’s Nurse’s Notes indicated that there was a change in condition because the resident “is experiencing pain” and yelling and grimacing when the left ankle is touched.
Documentation shows that the left inner ankle was discolored and “warm to the touch, swollen and painful to touch. There was no documentation regarding how this injury occurred.”
The Emergency Room Note of the same date at 9:03 PM documented that they were unsure “how the injury happened. The patient had an x-ray done today, showing a tibia/fibula fracture.” The survey team requested a copy of the facility reported incident of the resident’s leg fracture of unknown origin. However, there was no facility reported incident regarding the resident’s incident, as required by law.
In a separate incident, a different resident complained of pain to the bilateral legs and was hospitalized with a urinary tract infection and worsening medical conditions. An x-ray was done of the bilateral knees that resulted in an injury to the femoral neck of the hip. This fracture was an injury of unknown origin that “was not reported to the Office of Licensure and Certification until six working days after the fracture was discovered.
The investigators determined that “the facility failed to implement its abuse policy for [two residents].” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to implement the facility’s Abuse Policy and report a fracture of unknown origin [on May 4, 2016] to the required State Agency [timely].” Additionally, “the facility failed to complete an investigation for [that resident’s] fracture of unknown origin to rule out abuse.”
The nursing home also “failed to implement Abuse Policies and report a fracture of unknown origin (right femoral neck) to the required State Agency [timely for the other resident].”
