The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure residents were free from abuse/mistreatment.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan “did not identify any issues with making allegations of mistreatment toward staff or a history of making allegations toward staff or other residents.”
The survey team interviewed the resident, who identified that “there was a nurse that treated him/her roughly.” The resident indicated that the Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor “treated him/her roughly and indicated the incident occurred a while ago, sometime in the summer.”
The resident also indicated that “there were two other nurses present during the incident. The resident further indicated he/she had a rash and was receiving antibiotics and indicated that that was the reason the nurses were in his/her room on the date in question.”
The resident indicated that the RN “turned him/her very quickly, twisting his/her arms and flipped him/her around roughly.” The resident said, “I felt like a rag doll during the incident.” The resident told the Registered Nurse “to stop because he/she felt like he/she was being treated roughly, but [the RN] continued with what he/she was doing without stopping.”
The “nursing staff failed to ensure the proper administrative staff was notified of the allegations, and an investigation was initiated at the time of the report and not twenty-four hours later [that follows] facility practice.” Two residents “reported allegations of abuse or mistreatment.
A Reportable Event Form indicated that a resident “accused the Nurse Aide of hitting his/her roommate in the head.” A statement identified the resident “had accused the same Nurse Aide who had hit his/her roommate of unplugging his/her television and throwing the call bell on the floor. The report identified a Nurse Aide directed the accused Nurse Aide to leave the room and she then notified the Charge Nurse of the allegation.”
