- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date May 8, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement their abuse policy in the area of reporting abuse to the Administrator.” The policy reads in part: “any suspicions of abuse would be reported to the Administrator.”
The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident whose MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment, dated March 5, 2019, revealed the resident was “moderately cognitively impaired. The resident was coded as being independent in locomotion with the use of a wheelchair.”
The resident stated that “he had been in another resident’s room [and] denied he touched any residents.” The resident was observed driving his motorized wheelchair “both forward and backward without difficulty and positioned himself easily within close proximity of the table where the interview was held.” The resident could freely move his arms and waved them in the air.
A Nurse Aide stated that a second resident had “a mind like a child and she does what she is told.” The Aide stated that she had witnessed [the first resident touching the second resident’s] “breast, and in her brief.” The Nurse Aide asked the female resident “why did you let him do that to you?” The female resident responded in a slurred voice “I do not know.”
The Nurse Aide stated that the aggressive male resident seeks the female resident out. The male resident touches the female resident and that this had “been going on for months.”
The Nurse Aide stated that staff attempts to watch over the female resident but “she just knew what she observed happening to [the female resident] was not right.” The aide stated she witnessed the male resident touching the female resident’s breast and “he had his hand in her brief. There was also the incident she observed in which [the female resident] had her hand in front of the [male resident’s] pants.”
The Nurse Aide also said there were other incidents where the male resident was rubbing the female resident’s side and that “these incidents occurred in the dining room or in the day room when there was no one around.”
