- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date November 16, 2018
- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date July 31, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home failed to protect one resident “from verbal abuse.” A review of the resident’s medical records revealed that the resident expired at the facility.
The 24-Hour Initial Allegation Report involving the resident, initiated by a Social Worker, indicated that “the resident reported [that a] Kitchen Employee argued with him, then stuck up a middle finger at him and told him that she would do something to his food.” The report revealed that the resident “was upset with the incident but did not experience any physical harm.”
The Five-Day Investigation Report “revealed that Dietary Aide who witnessed the altercation was disciplined, and the employee who argued with the resident was terminated.”
The facility “failed to provide supervision and hydration for [one resident], which resulted in extreme outdoor heat exposure for a duration of two hours.” The resident “fell from his wheelchair onto the outdoor patio, had an altered mental status when he was discovered and had a body temperature of 104.1°F upon assessment by emergency medical technicians.” The nursing staff sent the resident to the hospital.
The investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation began on July 22, 2018, when a Resident Care Specialist discovered the resident “lying on the courtyard patio near his wheelchair with a pulse rate of 113, blood pressure 59/39, and was verbally unresponsive.”
The nursing staff transported the resident to the hospital by ambulance, where “he was admitted for suspected heatstroke.” The investigative team reviewed the facility’s courtyard/patio camera footage that revealed that the resident “was seen entering the enclosed courtyard area via the facility’s door on the north side of the building.”
The resident “navigated in his wheelchair about the courtyard on the sidewalk and the patio, by propelling himself with his left leg. There was partial shade in the courtyard from a tree located on the side of the courtyard, closer to the south side of the building. Outdoor tables were located on the part of the patio closest to the door on the north side of the building.” The resident “navigated to one of the tables in the sun and sat in his wheelchair.”
At that time, “there was no other staff member seen in the courtyard, [except when] the staff member was seen at the vending machine, which was located at the entrance to the courtyard area. The staff member did not approach the resident or speak to him.”
