The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect [one resident] from abuse.” The resident, “who was exhibiting behaviors of paranoia, assaulted [another resident], who was cognitively impaired.” The injured victim “was admitted to the hospital.”
The assaulting resident “was moved to reside in the same room with [the victim].” Immediate Jeopardy began at 7:20 PM, the night that the one resident assaulted the victim. The severely cognitively impaired victim “was discovered on the floor, with blood on his face, head, chest, pants, and the floor.”
The aggressive resident “was discovered sitting in the room, in his wheelchair, with a set of keys in his hands, with blood present on his hands.” The surveyors determined that “the Immediate Jeopardy is present and ongoing.”
The victim’s Care Plan revealed that this patient “needed monitoring for inappropriate actions (yelling at their spouse, threatening to hit/strike spouse, being argumentative with spouse, etc.) toward [their] spouse and having periods of confusion.”
The nursing staff is guided to remove the resident from the spouse’s surroundings when she appeared to be upsetting and agitating him, for her safety. The “resident’s spouse was moved out of the resident’s room, into another room.”
The aggressive resident “had received an antipsychotic and an antidepressant for each of the seven days of the assessment period. The resident was coded as having received an anti-anxiolytic for four days of the last seven-day assessment period.”
The “facility failed to monitor an identified lesion on [a resident’s] right great toe, that progressed to a Stage II pressure ulcer.” The nursing home also “failed to provide treatment to the pressure ulcer.”
A review of the resident’s medical records indicated “a problem of potential skin breakdown, secondary to incontinence of bowels and impaired mobility. The problem area was initiated on August 16, 2017, and most recently updated on July 18, 2018. The update included a problem of an unstageable [facility-acquired pressure ulcer to the resident’s] sacrum.”
