- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date November 18, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure residents were free from abuse for [one resident].” Investigation involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who “require limited assistance of one staff for transfers, dressing, and personal hygiene” and “extensive assistance of two staff with bathing.”
The resident’s Plan of Care dated April 4, 2016 Director the staff “to provide assistance of one staff with bathing in the shower room, remove from public area if removing clothing and minimize potential of behavioral problems by modifying environmental factors and daily routines.”
The facility reported to appropriate authorities “an allegation of abuse” that allegedly occurred five days earlier on October 12, 2016. The investigation indicated that one staff member had reported another staff “had a shower wand and sprayed [the resident] in the face multiple times.” The reporting staff member stated that the resident “had verbally abusive and combative behaviors during the shower” and reported that “each time the resident cussed,” the other staff members sprayed the resident “in the face.”
The investigators reviewed the facility’s Abuse and Negligent dated September 2013 that reads in part: the resident has a right to be free from verbal, sexual, physical, and mental abuse, corporal punishment, and involuntary seclusion. The resident’s must not be subjected to abuse by anyone, including but not limited to, Center staff, other residents, consultants or volunteers, staff or other agency serving the resident, family members, or legal guardians, friends, or other individuals.”
