- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation #F609 date June 12, 2018
The state investigators determined “the facility failed to ensure an allegation of sexual abuse was reported immediately to the Executive Director.” The Director of Nursing provided the Indiana State Department of Health Incident Form to the investigators at 10:00 AM on June 11, 2018.
The form documenting the incident was dated June 3, 2018, at 5:01 PM. The brief description of the incident documented that on June 4, 2018, a resident had reported to a Registered Nurse “that she had been raped. However, she was unable to provide details as to who, when, or the description of the person.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) that identified the resident had scored an 8 (where a score 15 indicates no memory impairment).
The Incident Form documented by a Registered Nurse (RN) indicated that approximately 5:00 PM on June 3, 2018, the nurse entered the resident’s room who “was sitting on her bed, fully dressed. The resident started talking very quickly, like she does, asking the nurse if everything was okay, and if I felt okay and so on.” Then the resident stated that “she was raped.”
The Registered Nurse repeated, “you ‘was’ raped?” The resident replied, “Yes.” The nurse then asked when “this happened, and she stated, ‘I don’t know.’ The nurse asked her who raped her?” The resident responded, “I don’t know.”
The nurse then asked her if the sexual predator “was male or female.” At that time, the nurse “reassured her that if this was supposed to have happened today that this nurse had been here all day, and no one had been in her room except for her sister.” The nurse stated that “she had sat with her with the door open all the time, and no one else had been there.”
The resident replied, “okay, okay.” A nurse consultant overheard that the resident “had made an allegation of the sexual assault and stated she needed to interview the resident to make a report. However, the Registered Nurse indicated that “no one had touched her, and she felt safe [indicating that] she was afraid of Jesus.”
