Diversicare of Foley Nursing Center
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision, or understaffing. In these incidents, the needs of the residents are often ignored; they suffer serious injuries from a fall or develop life-threatening bedsores. Other residents wander away from the facility due to a lack of supervision, as mentioned in the citation below.

- 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 4, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure that two residents “were free from abuse perpetrated by [two other residents] who reside on the secured Alzheimer’s Care Unit (Dementia Unit) of the facility.”
On April 28, 2018, one abusive resident “was observed to willfully push [one of the assaulted residents] down, causing the resident to fall, cry, and scrape the side of his/her back. Four days later, on May 2, 2018, staff observed [the same abusive resident slap another assaulted resident].” During the first shift on May 25, 2018, the staff noted that the allegedly abusive resident continued to target the resident who had been slapped.
The assaulting resident yelled at the resident who was slapped, pushed their face “into a wall, and tried to slam a door on the resident. After this incident, the staff placed [the aggressive resident] on one-on-one staff supervision. However, while not being supervised by staff, later in the day on May 25, 2018, during the second shift, [the abusive resident] forcibly pushed another resident] down, causing this resident to fall.”
Again, on June 26, 2018, the abusive resident and the resident who was slapped “were observed by staff to be pushing each other back and forth and both residents fell onto the floor.” On another occasion, a second abusivev resident “was observed by staff to forcefully and intentionally push [another resident] down to the floor, which rendered [this resident] unconscious.”
These “deficient practices affected [both injured residents], two of six sample residents reviewed for abuse, and placed these residents in Immediate Jeopardy for serious injury, harm, or death. This failure also had the potential to affect the remaining twenty-six residents who resided in the facility’s Alzheimer’s Care Unit.”
