- 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 13, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [two residents] were free from abuse.” This deficient practice was “evidenced by a failure to thoroughly investigate an allegation of abuse involving [a Certified Nursing Assistant] which could have prevented a substantiated allegation of abuse towards [another resident] involving [the same CNA] less than two months later.”
This failure “has the potential to affect 167 residents residing in the facility.” A review of the Agency Health Care Administration Federal Immediate Report revealed that an incident had occurred involving a resident on September 24, 2018, at 9:00 PM. The report indicates that a family member had reported to the night supervisor that the resident “told her that several weeks ago, [the Nursing Assistant] had touched her inappropriately.”
The resident wrote a statement indicating that a few weeks ago, the CNA “began to clean the area where she had been sitting in urine. He began cleaning the buttocks and the area in my pelvic area. He then touched my vagina. I told him to stop; he had no business touching me in that manner. He left the room.”
The resident stated that “the immediate response was to remove [the CNA] from the schedule pending the investigation. Notifications include [the resident’s] representative, law enforcement, and the Abuse Registry.”
The conclusion of the report indicated that “the abuse allegation was unsubstantiated. It was a misunderstanding during perineal care.” The documentation shows the nursing staff took corrective action, including in-servicing all Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) regarding perineal care. There “was no additional documentation regarding the investigation.”
The resident indicated that she had been disturbed by the encounter and “wanted to report it because ‘I felt violated. I knew that I have had many male Certified Nursing Assistants tend to me and not one ever touched my vagina. I wanted to call the police, but I felt I owed the nursing home a chance to handle this employee.’”
The resident stated that they told the nurse what happened. After walking out with the Certified Nursing Assistant, “she came back and asked me if I was sure. [The CNA] said on his mother’s grave he did not touch me, only clean to me. I did not care what he said, and I knew what I was saying. I told her I had a son and I would not make such a claim if it were not true. I was upset to see him again in front [of me].”
The resident stated, “if he came in I would call the police. She said he would not come in [the resident’s room]. I finally fell asleep.”
