The preponderance of evidence establishes that neglect is substantiated when the AP gave hot coffee to a resident in a Styrofoam cup without a lid and the resident sustained a second degree burn to the left forearm. The preponderance of evidence also establishes that neglect is substantiated when the facility staff failed to notify the physician of the resident’s burn, resulting in delay of medical treatment to the resident for 48 hours.
