- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date June 23, 2016
The state investigators determined from a review of a Progress Note dated November 8, 2015 that “while sitting in her wheelchair waiting for breakfast at 7:30 AM, another resident approach this resident and hit his leg three times.” The assaulting resident stated that “he stole his place in the dining room.”
The surveyors stated that “the resident did nothing to provoke the other and did admit wanting to hit him back but did not.” The staff “was present for the entire incident and preventing any further actions although another resident continued to verbally harass him and yell rude remarks to this man.” There was “no injuries found from the incident.”
The surveyors interviewed the facility Administrator who stated that “she was aware of the conflict between [the resident’s] in the only interventions in place was to keep to residents separated while in the therapy room.” An interview with the resident revealed that the assaulting resident “used to pick on me and make me feel afraid he was going to hurt me. He would get up in my face very close.”
The victim stated that the assaulting resident “now picks on other people in the facility and he is left me alone. He is very nasty to everyone, not just one person.” The victim also said that the assailant “shouted out loud across the therapy room to remove my waiting and showed all the men [I and] bald headed.”
