- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 5, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the residents were free from mistreatment.” The resident’s Care Plan dated January 2, 2019, identified that the resident “exhibited inappropriate sexual behaviors and touched other residents/visitors inappropriately in the past, with interventions that directed to provide diversion activities as needed, every fifteen minutes, as ordered.” The staff was also ordered to “monitor the resident’s emotional status [with a] referral to psychiatric services.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated February 7, 2019, the “facility failed to protect the residents from mental abuse or failed to ensure the resident was free from neglect.” A review of this resident’s Care Plan revealed that the resident “was at risk for violence related to aggressive threats toward other residents.”
The nursing staff was guided to provide interventions to the aggressive resident, including fifteen-minute checks, [and to] “refer to psychotherapy, and notify the Physician of agitation or violent acts toward others.” The facility Administrator wrote a letter to a Registered Nurse (RN), identifying that the sexually inappropriate resident was continually targeting another resident “with bullying and decisive behaviors.”
The document states that on the morning of October 13, 2018, the aggressive resident was observed unplugging the electric wheelchair of another resident. The aggressive resident “orchestrates activities to belittle, isolate, or degrade [the other resident].” The aggressive resident “has been seen shouting at [the victim] [to] make him/her move from a dominant position next to the person he/she is having a conversation with.”
