- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date March 6, 2019
The state investigative team determined the facility “failed to complete a thorough investigation for [one resident] reviewed for an allegation of sexual abuse. The failure to ensure the alleged violation was thoroughly investigated placed cognitively impaired residents at risk for undetected abuse.”
The incident involved a resident who had “a surgical procedure to create an opening through the neck into the windpipe.” The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) indicated that the cognitively intact resident “requires extensive assistance with bed mobility, transfers, toileting, and dressing, hygiene, and bathing.”
The state surveyors reviewed the facility investigation report dated February 14, 2019. The report indicated that the resident alleged a staff member, an Agency Nursing Assistant “sexually abused him during the night of February 13, 2019, to February 14, 2019. The resident was sent to the emergency room for further evaluation.”
The resident stated during an interview on February 21, 2019, that a staff member “pressed his fist against his rectum and tried to fist him.” The resident stated the Agency Nursing Assistant “had sexually assaulted him.” The resident reaffirmed his allegation on February 25, 2019.
The investigators interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) who stated that other residents that the Nursing Assistant had provided care for during the night shift that evening “were not interview-able.” A review of “the facility investigation showed no documentation that the facility had ensured other residents that [the Agency Nursing Assistant] care for, who are cognitively impaired, were not potentially harmed [by that staff member].”
The investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing Services who stated that “she did not receive a report from the hospital to provide information regarding the presence of any harm to [the allegedly sexually abused resident].” The Director of Nursing Services stated that “she had suspended [the Agency Nursing Assistant] and did not believe the facility needed to examine each cognitively impaired resident for harm.”
The Director also stated that “the interdisciplinary team did grand rounds each morning with the nurses and nursing assistants at each unit.” During these rounds, they could determine “whether the residents had any new skin issues, changes in behavior, or changes in condition.”
