- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 14, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect the resident’s right to be free from sexual abuse .” The resident was observed by staff, touching another resident “in her perineal area and confessed to police that he had touched [the severely cognitively impaired] resident.”
The police deemed the assaulter “to be sufficiently oriented to the extent that his confession was credible evidence [that] he had assaulted [the other resident].” The investigators reviewed Nursing Notes of injuries made before August 21, 2018. There “were no nursing entries noting inappropriate sexual behavior since the resident’s initial admission to the facility on June 26, 2018.”
A nurse made a Nursing Entry indicating that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “reported she observed the resident standing in the doorway being sexually inappropriate (two times) [during] their shift.” However, over the next two days, “there were no further documented episodes of sexually inappropriate behaviors noted.” A nurse stated on August 21, 2018, that the assaulted resident “had a full-time facility staff member sitting with her because she had recently sustained a fall and was confused.”
The nurse said that the assaulted resident’s “sitter had reported to the [nurse] that she observed [another resident] looking across the hall into [the victim’s] room, while masturbating in his room.”
The nurse said that “she recalled the sitter stating that [the alleged perpetrator’s] vision was directed at her (the sitter), and not at the resident, while engaging in this activity.” The nurse stated that the assaulting resident “did not wander and typically stayed in and around his room.” The nurse said that the victim “had multiple staff members sitting with her and she did not recall which sitter had reported this.”
A review of the assaulting resident’s Care Plan revealed that this resident “displayed socially inappropriate/sexual behavior in public.” The resident “was seen masturbating in the hall, looking at a female resident.”
