- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F 600 date October 8, 2018
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 17, 2018
The nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] was free from verbal abuse” when a nursing aide “was overheard speaking to the resident in a loud tone and saying comments to the resident which were verbally abusive in nature while providing care to the resident.”
The surveyor overheard someone saying, “you need to stop acting like a two-year-old. Stop yelling and screaming if you want something you have to say please.”
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide an environment free of accident hazards over which the facility had control. Chemical substances, shaving razors, and multiple toiletries were unsecured and accessible to residents in the South Short CLEANING Utility Room.” This failure “had the potential to affect more than a limited number of residents.”
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated during an interview that the “Cleaning Utility Room is to be locked at all times [and that] she would let someone know the door was not locking.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated June 29, 2017, the nursing home “failed to ensure the environment was free of accident hazards as is possible. The Clean Utility Room on the North Hall provided resident’s access to numerous potentially hazardous personal hygiene items. This failed practice had the potential effect more than a limited number of residents who were physically capable of entering the room.”
The state investigators conducted an initial tour of the facility and observed the Clean Utility Room. Although “the door had a keypad lock, the lock was not engaged, and the room was entered freely by two surveyors.” The investigators inspected the contents of the room and found numerous potentially hazardous items including products that states “in case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact the Poison Control Center immediately.”
