The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement any interventions to address the resident’s refusal of showers. Maggots were found again in her abdominal folds.”
The investigation involved staff and resident interviews and an interview with the Nurse Practitioner. The “facility neglected to implement interventions in place to address the resident’s refusal of daily showers, which were ordered by the Physician to treat [the resident] for having maggots on her body.” The resident “experienced a second occurrence of maggots growing on her body, which required continued treatment at the facility.” The surveyors determined that “Immediate Jeopardy began on June 22, 2018,” when “the resident refused showers.”
The “facility failed to protect [two residents] from abuse.” Staff members and residents witnessed the cognitively impaired patient “being sexually abused by [an aggressive resident] who was cognitively intact.” Additionally, a third resident “[who] was cognitively intact, was verbally abused by [a nurse].”
The survey team determined Immediate Jeopardy began when the sexually violated resident “was sexually abused by the aggressive resident. The incident was witnessed by two Nurse Aides” who “did not remove [the victim] from the situation.”
A Nurse’s Note indicated that the Nurse had been called into the resident smoking area because the sexually aggressive resident was touching the other resident inappropriately. When the nurse arrived at the smoking area, they noticed the aggressive resident “try to put his hands back into [the victim’s] pants.” The nurse stated that the aggressive resident needed to stop “what he was doing right now.” The aggressive resident “then replied, ‘I can jerk him come off; he likes it.’”
