- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Mental Abuse, Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date June 22, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Prevention and Control Program – citation #F880 date July 10, 2018 According to state surveyors “the facility failed to ensure appropriate hand hygiene between resident contact during medication administration.” Surveyors observed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who “washed [their] hands before giving a medication to [a resident] and then proceeded to give medications to [three other residents] without washing [their] hands or using a hand sanitizer before and after giving the medications.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] was free from physical abuse.” The survey team reviewed the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment that revealed the resident “had not exhibited verbal or physical behavior toward others during the assessment period.
However, a June 3, 2018 Progress Note written by the Director of Behavioral Health revealed an incident where the resident “was sitting in the hallway when punched by another resident for no apparent reason.” The note says that the resident “was punched in the back by another resident [and] there was no injury.”
Documentation shows that the physically abusive resident “had hallucinations and delusions and exhibited physical behaviors directed toward others (hitting, kicking, pushing, scratching, grabbing, abusing other sexually), and verbal behaviors (threatening others, screaming and others, cursing and others).”
Records show that the facility “developed a Care Plan that addressed these identified behaviors.” However, on June 3, 2018, the physically abusive resident punched the victim “in the back with a closed fist” that was “witnessed by a nursing supervisor.”
The facility placed the physically aggressive resident on one-on-one staff coverage and notified the local police department and the resident’s guardian.
In a separate summary statement dated June 12, 2018, the facility “failed to ensure [two residents] were free from physical abuse.” The survey team reviewed a resident’s Care Plan that revealed one resident “had behaviors including that respecting personal space of others, going in and out of piers’ rooms.”
The resident “was discharged to another facility on June 8, 2018. Documentation shows that this resident “was cognitively intact and had verbal behaviors along with other behavioral symptoms not directed toward others (e.g., Physical symptoms such as hitting or scratching self, pacing, rummaging, public sexual acts, disrobing and public, throwing or smearing food and bodily waste, or verbal/vocal symptoms like screaming, disruptive sounds).”
Documentation shows that the facility called the local law enforcement after an incident where the aggressive resident punched the victim “in the face” due to the [victim’s] “unwillingness to leave [the physically aggressive resident’s] room that he wandered into.”
