- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date March 16, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to protect [one resident] from another resident after a sexual assault.” The victim “was sexually assaulted.” The facility staff “failed to immediately separate and protect [the assaulting resident from the abusive resident] after becoming aware of the assault.”
A review of the assaulted resident’s Quarterly Assessment revealed that the severely, cognitively impaired resident needed “extensive to total assistance of one staff member to perform activities of daily living, except for eating.” The resident was incontinent of bowel and bladder and “had no range of motion limitations in a primary mode of mobility was her wheelchair.”
The aggressive resident had mild, cognitive impairment and required “limited to total assistance of one staff member to perform her activities of daily living except for eating.” The aggressive resident had “range of motion limitation on one side and her primary mode of mobility was her wheelchair.”
On March 14, 2016, at 2:30 PM, the aggressive resident “was observed in her room in bed [watching] the maintenance staff member as he repaired the air conditioner.” The aggressive resident’s bed “was perpendicular to the assaulted resident’s bed “located near the door.” The following day, the Administrator “announced to the survey team that [the aggressive resident] sexually fondled [the assaulting resident and that the resident] was being sent to the emergency room for evaluation. The Administrator said the plan was to separate the residents and send a Facility Reported Incident to the Office of Licensure and Certification.”
At the time of the announcement, “there was a police officer in the facility addressing the incident. The Administrator said [the injured resident] would most likely be the one to change rooms because there were no private rooms available.” The Administrator said [the aggressive resident] would be staying in the same room without a roommate.”
The Progress Note for the injured resident indicated that the resident “was examined this morning after a staff member reported inappropriateness. The patient had no noted vaginal trauma, no swelling or blood coming from the vaginal area. The patient’s brief was changed, and peri-care completed.”
