- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date March 24, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to protect two residents from abuse when [one resident] was inappropriately touched by [another resident], when the resident was observed with his finger inside [the female resident’s] vagina.”
In a separate incident, another female resident’s “crotch was groped by a visitor who was a registered sex offender certified by Megan’s Law, when staff failed to effectively supervise the location of the offender at all times as instructed by the Administrator.” These “failures had the potential to cause psychosocial harm to [both the assaulted residents].”
A concurrent interview and observation were made of the first female resident while sitting in her wheelchair in the hallway holding a teddy bear. The resident “became tearful and stated, ‘I have been bad.’” The resident “was unable to answer, coherently, additional questions.”
A few minutes later, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that she was aware that the sexually inappropriate male resident “was on fifteen-minute checks (observing the resident every fifteen minutes) due to his behaviors of touching residents and staff inappropriately.” The CNA said that the staff “was to visualize and document, every fifteen minutes, [the sexually inappropriate male’s] activities.”
The CNA had stated that “at approximately 4:00 PM on that afternoon she was across the hall from the female resident’s room and noticed a stop sign (a stop sign extended across the door opening) hung down one side of the door. The absence of the sign going across the door would have allowed others to go in and out of the room without the presence of a visual barrier.”
When the CNA went into the resident’s room, the male resident was “in a wheelchair beside [the female resident’s] bed.” The CNA stated that “the male resident’s hand was clearly on the female resident’s crotch.” The CNA reported the incident to the Licensed Nurse and provided a verbal report of the incident to the Administrator.
The facility Social Services Director stated that the male resident “had a known behavior of inappropriately touching others.” The Director stated that “she had been aware of [the male resident’s] sexual behavior toward others and the staff [before] the incident with [the female resident].”
