- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date December 12, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to prevent verbal abuse for [one resident] reviewed for abuse.” A review of the facility’s Investigation Interviews for the Alleged Verbal Abuse Incident revealed that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “was witnessed speaking to [the resident] and a loud, disrespectful voice, and using profanity.”
The record indicated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) told the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “she should not have spoken to [the resident] like she did.” Another CNA had been sitting with the resident “at the Nurse’s Station when the incident occurred and also witnessed the conversation.”
The surveyors interviewed and observed the resident just before lunchtime on October 17, 2018, in the resident’s room. The interview revealed that on October 3, 2018, around 6:30 AM to 6:45 AM during the shift change, “the resident was going to talk to the shower girl about getting her hair washed before a doctor’s appointment later that day.”
The resident revealed that she saw the CNA “coming down the hallway, and she asked the CNA to push her to the Nurses’ Station.” The resident “stopped at the nurse’s station next to a vital signs machine and started taking her own blood pressure while waiting for the shower girl.”
The LPN “was in the medication room at that time, and when she saw the resident at the nurse’s station, she came out cussing.” The resident stated that the LPN was cussing “about me wanting my medications too soon.” The resident stated that “she tried to explain to the LPN that she was not there for her medications but was waiting on the shower girl to get her hair washed.”
The resident stated that the LPN “went back into the medication room and after a short while the LPN came back and tried to console her [the resident] due to her crying about being upset about the conversation.” The Assistant Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident “was having some anxiety over the incident and offered to have the facility psychologist visit her if she thought it would benefit.”
