- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date August 6, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home failed to protect the resident “from physical abuse on June 28, 2019, when a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) hit [the resident] on the left arm in the bathroom. This failure has the potential for [the resident] to experience emotional trauma from physical abuse.” As a result, the investigators conducted an unannounced visit at the facility “regarding a reported incident of physical abuse.”
The Director of Nursing told the investigators that a Licensed Vocational Nurse “was knocking on the resident’s room because the call light was on.” The Director stated that the nurse “heard the resident shouting, ‘get out,’ but she entered the room because she was concerned about the resident.”
At that time, the Licensed Vocational Nurse/Charge Nurse approached the resident’s bathroom and witnessed the resident “trying to protect himself with his left hand.” The nurse then saw a CNA striking the resident “on the arm.” The Charge Nurse “immediately reported the incident and the CNA was escorted out of the facility.”
During the incident, the Charge Nurse stated that the CNA “was caught by surprise by my presence, then verbalized that, ‘because he hit me.’ I immediately helped the resident to his wheelchair and assessed the resident from head to toe with no injury noted at this time, but with chronic [swelling] on the bilateral lower extremities – lower legs.”
The case was reported immediately to the Director of Nursing for action, the Certified Nursing Assistant was immediately escorted from the building and “suspended pending the investigation.” At 2:00 PM, the police arrived and “reported the incident for further investigation.”
During the investigation, the Charge Nurse was asked about the behaviors of the Certified Nursing Assistant “toward other residents.” The nurse indicated that “sometimes the CNA gave an attitude, and that day, the CNA was agitated.”
The Director of Staff Development stated that the CNA “sometimes had an attitude [and that] she did not think [the CNA] should be working with residents.” The Director of Nursing stated that “there was an incident last year when [the CNA] handled another resident roughly, and he was disciplined for that incident.”
