- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date February 1, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure [one resident] was free from verbal abuse when [the resident] reported to the facility that a Licensed Nurse told her to shut up and screamed at her, making [the resident] fearful. This failure had the potential to negatively impact the resident’s psychosocial well-being.”
The resident filed a grievance with the facility on November 21, 2018, and reported that the day earlier at 9:00 AM, the Licensed Nurse “called her crazy, and she felt verbally abused.” The state investigators interviewed the resident on December 5, 2018, while “up in her wheelchair in her room.” The resident “was alert, clean, dressed properly, and was oriented to person, place, and time.”
At that time, the resident stated that she did not want the licensed nurse around. The resident “went on to report that [the Licensed Nurse] told her to shut up and spoke in a loud and snotty tone of voice.” The resident further reported that the Licensed Nurse “threatened to not take the residents out on a smoke break if they did not behave.”
The resident said that the Licensed Nurse “told her she used to work in a mental institution ward, and she called the residents from that facility retards. According to [the resident, the Licensed Nurse] then threatened that if they (the residents) were not careful, she would treat them that way.”
The resident described the Licensed Nurse “as scary and stated [that the Licensed Nurse] would not help her when she needed assistance. When asked how this made [the resident] feel, she stated she felt helpless.” The resident “reported feeling much better now that [the Licensed Nurse] was no longer in the facility.”
