- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date October 5, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that residents were free from neglect.” The state investigators interviewed the resident who stated that “she felt like the way the facility treated her [regarding] incontinent care and personal hygiene was abusive.”
The resident explained that “she did not have any problems on the day shift; however, she stated that the 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM shift was hit and miss with coming into change her adult brief. The resident referred to documentation she had on her mobile phone and stated she would send this information to the surveyor via email once the interview was completed.”
The resident documented in a detailed record over a mobile phone that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “made me wait from 6:40 PM to 8:40 PM to clean me up after I had a bowel movement.” The resident stated that “I was changed only twice from 11:00 PM to 9:30 AM, which resulted in the incontinent pads under my bottom becoming soaked.” The resident said, “I was changed at 10:30 PM by my CNA, but was not changed again until 3:00 AM.”
The resident said that “by that time, my sheets, pad, and linens were all wet. When I brought this up to my CNA, she argued with me, and she said she had no responsibility to change me if my light was not on and said it was my fault because my light was not on.”
