- 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 7, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect a resident’s right to be free from physical abuse.” The resident “sustained facial injuries, which included lacerations and a bloody nose, after being struck by [another resident].” The injured resident “required an evaluation of his injuries in the emergency room.”
A review of the victim's Care Plan identified the resident “was at risk for elopement related to dementia and wandering.” The aggressive resident’s Care Plan revealed: “he had the potential to demonstrate physical behaviors (grabbed another resident on the arm, struck another resident in the face, struck the roommate on the left side of the head and pulled on his arm).”
A Behavior Note for the aggressive resident revealed that “at approximately 3:50 PM one day, a nurse observed [the victim] lying on the floor in [the aggressive resident’s] room.” The victim “had blood coming from his nose, a hematoma to his right eyebrow area and some shortness of breath, as he yelled out for help.”
The aggressive resident “was sitting in his wheelchair beside [the victim].” The aggressive resident had hit the victim “because he was in his room and hit him in the eye. The nurse examined both [of the assaulted resident’s] eyes and no redness or swelling was observed.” The nurse explained to the aggressive resident that the victim “was not aware of his actions and in the future, he needed to use his call button to call for assistance.”
