- 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 16, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to protect [one resident’s] right to be free from physical and verbal abuse.” The investigation involved a resident with “long-term and short-term memory problems, inattention, disorganized thinking, and moderate cognitive impairment.”
The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the resident “exhibited behaviors including hallucinations, delusions, rejection of care, and other symptoms such as scratching, pacing, disrobing, throwing, or smearing bodily wastes, and screaming.”
The facility’s Initial Investigation Report documented on October 27, 2018, “an allegation of physical and verbal abuse perpetrated by [a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)] toward [the resident].” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated “I was working, and I heard a lot of commotion coming from [the resident’s] room. I went into the room and they [two Certified Nursing Aides] were having a hard time with [the resident who was] kicking, screaming, hitting, fighting, and throwing (feces).”
The Licensed Practical Nurse stated that they called for another LPN to come help but they just “stood back at first and did not help with the caring for [the resident] or try to talk to [the resident].” The documentation shows that the second LPN who had just entered the room then “put a sock in [the resident’s] mouth. The socks did not get into [the resident’s] mouth by accident; it was deliberative.” The reporting LPN stated that the aggressive LPN told the resident that the resident was a bastard. This [list of events] all happened around 2:00 AM.”
During an interview with the aggressive LPN, it was revealed that “I did say [the resident] was trying to be a bastard. I have no idea how the socks ended up in [the resident’s] mouth. When [the resident] was fighting, I jumped and the socks fell out of my hand onto [the resident’s] forehead, rolled down, and then [the resident] bit on them.”
The Administrator told the investigators that they were going to terminate the aggressive Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and end his employment, but the LPN sent in their resignation while they were suspended during the investigation.
