- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Physical Restraints Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F221 date November 16, 2016
- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date June 12, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure three residents “remained free from physical restraints for the purposes of staff convenience when [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] used a bed sheet to restrain [the resident] to his bed.” The facility also failed when “nursing staff applied a self-releasing seatbelt (a seatbelt with the buckle) to the resident while in the wheelchair without ensuring a physical restraint assessment was done to evaluate if less restrictive measures were unsuccessful.”
The facility also failed when “nursing staff applied a lap buddy (a snug cushion applied to the lap of the resident in a wheelchair to prevent the resident from getting up) to [another resident] while up in a wheelchair without ensuring a physical restraint assessment was done to evaluate if less restrictive measures were unsuccessful.” These “failures infringed upon the rights of [three residents] to be free from physical restraints and had the potential to cause physical and psychosocial harm.”
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure the right to be free from abuse [for one resident] when a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) slapped the resident on the back of the head. This failure placed [the resident] at risk for increased anxiety, fear, and mental anguish due to the physical assault by the facility caregiver.” The investigation involved a resident with severe cognitive impairment.
The facility Director of Nursing stated that at 1:45 PM on March 5, 2018, “the facility Cook reported she witnessed [the CNA] slap the resident on the back of the head with a hard slap. The Director stated the Cook reported the incident” between the CNA and the resident had occurred that morning at 5:20 AM when the resident “refused to leave the dining room.” The Director stated that the facility had recorded a video showing the CNA hitting the resident on the back of the head.
