- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date September 8, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect a resident from being assaulted by an unknown male.” The “ unknown male was arrested and charged on September 5, 2017, with two second-degree sex offenses against [a resident].”
The state investigators initiated an Immediate Jeopardy on August 31, 2017, when the nurse “had to use force to open [the resident’s] barricaded door, and observed an unknown male in [the resident’s] room.” At that time, “the sheets were off the bed and the resident’s brief had been removed.”
The victim had been admitted to the facility and “was currently being treated with antibiotics for a urinary tract infection and over-the-counter medication for a yeast infection.” The resident “had short-term and long-term memory impairment and has severely impaired cognitive skills for daily decision-making.”
The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment specified that the resident “was not comatose, unable to speak, and had the rare ability to make themselves understood.”
A Nurse’s Entry indicated that on August 31, 2017, the nursing home called 911 “and police arrived at the facility [relating to] an unknown male observed in [the resident’s] room.” The Medical Transport Unit was dispatched at 11:38 PM and arrived [at the facility] at 11:52 PM.”
Reports indicate that “the resident may have been sexually assaulted by an unknown male that barricaded himself in the room and removed the resident’s brief. The unknown male had been allowed to leave the facility. Staff reported to the Medical Transport Unit that the resident had not been changed or cleaned since the assault.”
