- Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date May 9, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure one [resident] was free from neglect.” Specifically, the resident “was not provided activities of daily living during her menstrual cycle.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “stuffed wipes inside the resident’s vagina between her legs during the resident’s menstrual cycle, resulting in psychological harm. The resident stated in an interview, ‘I felt awful, humiliated, and embarrassed. I am so happy to be out of there, and I cannot imagine having to go back there.’”
An Adult Protection Services report was reviewed and found that the resident was “without care related to bathing and bloody wipes were found between the resident’s legs.” The investigators made the administrative staff aware of the Adult Protective Services report. The “facility staff involved in the Adult Protective Services report were not available for interview.”
Two employees involved in the incident were called numerous times with no answer. The “remainder of the staff involved were no longer employed at the facility.”
The investigators interviewed the resident who stated that “she was not provided activities of daily living care from the facility staff during her menstrual cycle for a proximally three days and that her bed was soaked with urine.” The resident stated that “when she finally was finally clean, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) found wipes stuffed inside her vagina and between [her] legs saturated with blood.”
The resident continued that she was made to “lie in bed soaked with urine for three days.” The resident stated, ‘I felt awful, humiliated, and embarrassed when the CNA pulled the covers back and discovered blood on the sheet and between my legs.” The resident stated that “it is enough to have someone change you because you cannot do it yourself, but to have someone leave you lying in blood is disgusting.”
The resident stated, “the worst part of it all was I had to go to my Care Plan Meeting and repeat this in front of my parents and my husband, it was degrading. When you were at the mercy of someone, it is just humiliating.”
