- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date October 24, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to assess and implement timely and effective interventions for the prevention of resident discomfort and an incident of inappropriate sexual contact for four residents.”
The deficient practice by the nursing home resulted in “verbalized complaints of resident behavior and the discovery of one resident being inappropriately touched in a sexual manner by another resident.”
A Facility Reported Investigation file revealed that a resident “was discovered [in another resident’s] room on the bed rubbing their groin/genital area. In response to the incident, a document contained in the file included statements from other residents on the unit when queried about whether any male patients had entered their rooms uninvited.”
Another resident stated that the wandering male resident “would sometimes stand in the doorway and stare in, he stares at me.” Another resident stated, “he always likes to stare at her in the doorway with his hands on his hip. I just close the door and pull the curtain, and I tell him to go back to bed. He stares at [the other resident], and it scares her when he does and says, ‘He is on the prowl again.’”
These two residents indicated that they had concerns about the male resident’s behaviors and stated that “they did not think the person was still in the facility.” One resident stated that the aggressive male resident would stand at the door and stare in “every day and every night [saying] he stared all the time when I was eating.”
In a separate summary statement dated October 12, 2018, the facility “failed to prevent verbal abuse of [two residents].” This deficient practice “resulted in both actual and potential mental anguish and psychosocial harm.”
The Facility Reported Incident Folder alleges a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “hurt [the resident’s] feelings and made her feel bad when she asked for a brief change by asking why she did not call for a bedpan [before] becoming incontinent.” The nursing home suspended the staff member “pending the outcome of the investigation and was subsequently counseled regarding customer service and resident’s rights by the Director of Nursing after the investigation was completed.”
