- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 19, 2018
- Failure to Keep Every Resident Free from Drugs That Restrain Them Unless Need for Medical Treatment – citation #F222 date December 7, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [a resident] was not subjected to sexual abuse by [another resident].” The investigators reviewed the facility policy titled: Incident Report Form that was filed to the Illinois Department of Public Health. The document indicates that the resident “exposed his genitals to [the other resident] at 1:15 AM.”
The report indicates that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had witnessed the male resident standing next to the other resident and heard the male resident state to the resident “can I see yours” and the first resident “had the tip of his penis at the top of his pants.”
The report indicates that the moderately, cognitively impaired resident is “independent with ambulation.” The Care Plan before the incident stated the resident “does not have documentation for sexual behaviors.”
The facility “administered an antipsychotic drug to [a resident] without consent and documented behaviors warranting the use of antipsychotic medication.” The severely, cognitively impaired resident was one of five residents “reviewed for antipsychotic medications.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) and Facility Reports indicating that the resident was receiving antipsychotic medications. However, “the assessment area for behavior management program has no documentation. The assessment area for the resident physical behaviors does not document [the resident] having any.”
The “comment areas on all three above dates document that the resident is exit-seeking at times.” The resident “needs extensive assist of one to two with activities of daily living and can become agitated at times with difficulty in redirecting.” However, there was no documentation in the resident’s medical records “of informed consent being given for the administration of the antipsychotic drug.” The Medication Administration Record had no reasons “documented on the back of [the paperwork] for the medication being given.”
The report does document that the resident had wandering behaviors, exit-seeking behaviors, and anxiety. The document also indicates that the resident refused to accept care at times and was attempting to exit.
