- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date April 2, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure one resident was free from verbal abuse by a staff member. The deficient practice could result in other residents being verbally abused.”
The state investigators reviewed the facility’s investigative report that revealed at approximately 5:20 PM one evening, the resident “reported to the Assistant Director of Nursing that she felt verbally abused by a Certified Nursing Assistant who was caring for her that evening.” The resident stated that she called “the CNA a [***] when she was told that she would need to wait for care. The CNA answered the resident by stating that if she needed to see an [***], all she needed to do was look in the mirror.”
The report included a CNA was working with another staff member who “was placed on suspension pending the investigation. The report also included the resident was alert and oriented to time, place, and person.” The document indicates that the CNA's “employment was terminated after completion of the investigation.”
The CNA provided a written statement concerning the incident and verified that the resident had called her an inappropriate word. The CNA stated that she responded by saying, “if you look in the mirror you will see the same thing.”
A written statement by another staff member indicated that the resident was wet, and she and the terminated CNA answered the resident’s call light. The staff member said that the resident called the staff member an inappropriate word, “she immediately went and reported it to the nurse and the Assistant Director of Nursing.”
The second employee stated that “she did not hear a response from the CNA [but said that] she felt very uncomfortable when the resident called the CNA a name.”
