- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date October 24, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home "did not provide adequate supervision for [a resident]. The lack of supervision resulted in [the resident] entering the room of [another resident and hitting that resident] in the arm.” The “altercation had the potential to cause emotional distress to [the assaulted resident] and have an adverse effect on a sense of well-being and safety.”
The aggressive resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) indicates that the resident never understands and is never understood, and is “severely impaired with disorganized thinking and inattention, history of physical behavior directed toward others, easily annoyed, rejects care, experiences hallucinations, experiences delusions, and wanders.”
The state investigators interviewed the facility Administrator who stated that the resident was “tired of the staff because she was constantly moving around the facility.” The Administrator stated that the resident “usually slept through the night [saying that] he did not know if [the resident] had a sitter at the time of the incident,” where she assaulted another resident.
The investigators interviewed the Activity Director, who stated that “she responded to a call for help from [the injured resident] at approximately 1:30 PM. The Activity Director stated that when she entered [the assaulted resident’s room, the aggressive resident] was pulling on the other resident’s blanket and hitting the other resident in the left arm.”
The assaulted resident “was lying on top of his bed. The Activity Director stated she was able to redirect [the wandering resident] out of the other resident’s room.” The aggressive wandering resident “did not have a one-on-one sitter with her.”
The assaulted resident stated that he was not hurt by the assault, saying that the female resident was harmless. The male resident stated that “there was no need to be concerned about the incident [saying that the aggressive female resident] did not have a staff person with her but that staff came to the room as soon as he called for help.”
