- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date November 8, 2018
According to investigators, “this facility failed to ensure residents were protected after reported/allegations of abuse.” In one incident, a cognitively impaired resident was admitted to the local hospital “due to a physical assault, closed head injury” and other harm.
When interviewed, “the resident was unable to recall details of the incident. However, Adult Protective Services reported the son called the police and reported he had assaulted his father the night before. The son reported he struck his father in the right eye and the right shoulders with his fists after his father urinated on himself.”
The resident son “reported his father was faking his urinary incontinence which is why he struck his father. The son was in police custody. The resident and his wife were under emergency guardianship and were discharged to a long-term health care facility.”
Observations were made of the resident’s room that revealed “the son was visiting with the resident and his wife unsupervised. The resident shares a room with his wife.”
The surveyors interviewed the Social Service Designee who verified the resident’s “son visited yesterday unsupervised and had been visiting with his mother and father weekly. She reported she was unaware of the details of the assault. However, she knew the son had assaulted [the resident before] admission. She was not aware the son had hit the resident in the “head and the shoulder with his fist,” according to hospital records.
During an interview with the resident’s legal surrogate was revealed that “she was unwarned [that the resident’s] son had hit him in the face and shoulder with his fist. She reported she did not have first-hand knowledge of the incident but was told [her son] had smacked them on the buttocks out of frustration.”
The resident’s legal guardian “reported the resident’s visitation with his son should be monitored and confirmed it was not deemed safe for the resident or his wife to return home under the son’s care.”
