- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date October 20, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement a plan to keep one resident safe from another resident who had physically abused [the victim] as evidenced by both residents observed sitting in 3 West Unit day room and the staff did not separate them.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Allegation of Abuse Occurrence Report that shows that one resident grabbed the other resident “around her neck, causing three scratches sized 4.0 cm, 2.0 cm x 2.0 cm, and 1.0 cm x 0.5 cm. Subsequent observations show that there were additional interactions between both residents.”
On one occasion, one resident wheeled himself “in his wheelchair from the East Unit, where he resides, to the West Unit day room. On the West Unit, [the other resident was seen] sitting in the doorway of the day room [when the first resident] turned around and went the opposite way away from the day room down the hallway of the West unit. There was no staff member observed redirecting [the first resident] back to the East Unit, where he resides.”
Additionally, a surveyor observed both residents together in the day room on the West Unit. At that time, “there was no staff member observed redirecting [the first resident] back to the East Unit, where he resides, or keeping them apart from each other.”
A review of a Psychiatric Assessment and Recommendation stated that one patient was involved in a physical altercation with another resident on September 10, 2017. The “staff reports that she was blocking another resident from passing, which the other resident responded by grabbing her neck and inflicting three small skin tears. She reports that the resident pushed her wheelchair and grabbed her neck unprovoked.”
The staff member stated that she needed “to defend herself when needed. Security and police were involved.” Adjustments were made to the resident’s Care Plan, including “prevent another resident from having close contact with her. [They were] instructed to refrain from any form of contact or communication with the resident in question. Continued current psychiatric medications and monitor for changes in mood.”
