- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date June 12, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure that all staff implemented the facility’s policy and procedure regarding abuse and neglect reporting, when a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was not reported to administration for frequently leaving her residents soaked in urine, often with brown rings, gesturing with her middle finger at a resident after engaging in a verbal altercation and then threatening to throw a candy dish at him.”
The state investigators determined that “this failure resulted in the CNA continuing to be employed and not performing her duties in a manner to prevent harm, such as possible skin breakdown from prolonged exposure to urine, and to engage in a verbal altercation that included obscene gestures and the threat of throwing objects at [a resident] without being removed from the facility immediately, placing other residents at risk for abuse.”
As a result, the investigators made an unannounced visit “to the facility to investigate a facility-reported incident of verbal abuse by [the CNA to the resident].” The Director of Nursing/Charge Nurse stated on the night of the incident that a Licensed Vocational Nurse “did not report anything to herself or the Administrator.”
The Director said that the resident “could be a handful at times – tantrums. He is pretty easy-going most of the time. He can be vocal cursing, but he apologizes after he calms down.” The Director denied that another resident “had ever spit at or threw objects at staff.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse told the investigators that the CNA “was insubordinate, neglected patients, was confrontational with [one resident], and used derogatory hand gestures.” The nurse stated that “he heard yelling from [the resident’s] room where he was cursing and saying out loud that [the CNA] kept bumping his bed and waking him up.”
The nurse said that the CNA “was arguing with [the resident] saying, ‘you spit on me’, but [the resident] denied this.” The nurse offered to help get the resident up “to put him in the wheelchair to bring them out to the hall.” The CNA then went back to the resident’s room and “continued to argue with the resident.”
The nurse indicated that “I went into the room to find [the CNA] using her middle finger to flip off the resident, which agitated him further and he began to scream, ‘Get this b***h out of here,’ and held up his water pitcher [threatening] to use the water pitcher if [the CNA] did not leave.” The CNA then picked up a candy dish and threatened to throw it at the resident.
