- Failure to Keep Resident’s Personal Medical Records Private and Confidential – citation #F583 date December 3, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home "failed to provide visual and personal privacy for [one resident] reviewed for privacy concerns.” The investigation involved a resident who was “alert and oriented, with no cognitive decline. He requires ‘set up’ help only with personal hygiene and was totally dependent on one person for bathing.”
The surveyors reviewed the focus area on the resident’s Care Plan. The document stated that the resident “was dependent on staff for meeting emotional needs relative to a chronic disease process and physical limitations.” The surveyors interviewed the resident. The resident stated that “he did not feel like he had any privacy at the facility.” The resident complained that “some of the nurses would come into his room, [without permission], early in the morning and give him needed medication.”
The resident stated that some nurses would come around “the privacy curtain while he was bathing, without waiting for permission to come around the curtain. He explained that he told the nurses he would prefer they wait for permission, but [said that] it does no good to [tell] them. He also explained that when he takes a shower, [staff members were coming] in the shower room to talk as he was showering.”
The resident said that “he would prefer privacy when he was showering but acknowledged he did require the assistance of one Nurse Aide to shower.” The resident stated that this lack of privacy “happens every couple of days and that it was dependent on who was working.”
A Nurse Aide assigned to the resident was interviewed and stated that “the resident did require help to shower. She said that while the resident was showering, she frequently had observed other residents coming into the shower room to use the bathroom while he was showering.”
The Nurse Aide stated that “she had not observed or heard [the resident] complaining of staff members coming into the shower room as he was showering. She stated [the resident] had complained to her about staff members coming around the privacy curtains in his room and not giving him enough time to cover up.”
The Director of Nursing said that “it was the policy of the facility to provide visual privacy during bathing or showering and to wait for permission to come around the privacy curtain when it was pulled.”
