The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect [two residents] from staff physical abuse. This [failure] resulted in the resident being hit and pushed into a glass door by an employee.” Additionally, a second resident “was hit in the head with a cookie, which was thrown at him by an employee.”
The investigative team determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation existed on October 13, 2018, when the resident “was in the dining room and a Nursing Assistant hit the resident in the face, then pushed him into a glass door.” No physical injuries were assessed.
The “facility failed to provide supervision to prevent a cognitively impaired resident from exiting the facility.” The resident “exited the facility and was found approximately twenty-four feet away from the door in 45°F weather.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated October 5, 2018, the facility “failed to follow the van lift manufacturer’s recommendations for lowering a resident, who is wheelchair-bound, to the ground with the Transportation Aide on the ground and the resident’s wheelchair in the correct position with the wheelchair brakes locked.”
Documentation shows that “while being assisted to exit the facility’s transport van, [the resident] fell backward in the wheelchair onto a platform of the van’s lift. The resident was immediately transported to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with [injuries].”
