- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 23, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure one resident was free from staff abuse.” The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who “was assessed to be totally dependent on staff for all activities of daily living.”
The investigators interviewed the resident who stated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “was so rough with him that he passed out. He further stated that he had reported [it] to the previous Director of Nursing and nothing was done about it.”
The state investigators informed the Administrator “of the allegation of abuse.” A review of the facility’s investigative report indicated that a CNA staff member was rough on the resident during a shower and that the “resident had requested that another CNA give him his shower, and he was not pleased that his preferred CNA was not available.”
The report indicates that “the resident felt that the CNA was rushing and went too fast with his shower. Per the report, the resident had stated that he made himself pass out. The report also included that the allegation of staff-to-resident abuse was not substantiated as [the CNA] was not rough with the resident and there was no intent to harm.”
The investigators interviewed the allegedly rough CNA, who stated that “she could recall the incident and thought it occurred [at another time than specified]. She stated she was assigned to provide care to the resident, and it was his shower day. She said the resident told her he was tired of new CNAs giving him a shower, and he only wanted the CNA who usually gave him a shower.”
The CNA stated that “when they were in the resident shower room, the resident bent his head down and kind of rolled his eyes, so she called him to the hallway for help.” The resident indicated that he did not want [the staff] to call 911 because he was just upset. The nurse came into the shower room, assessed the resident, and said that “he was okay and did not want to go to the hospital.”
The CNA indicated that “she had been trained and educated regarding the resident’s rights, dignity, and the right to make choices.” The CNA stated that “it was very wrong for her to continue with the shower when the resident said over and over for her to stop.”
