- Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date June 23, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure the resident “was free from physical abuse.” The resident stated that another resident had hit them “in the mouth on March 15, 2016, [and] the facility did nothing about it.”
The surveyors stated that the resident had informed them on June 23, 2016, at 11:25 AM that they were “assaulted by a former resident [about] three months ago.” The resident stated that “the assaulting resident entered their room and hit them in the mouth with his/her fist.”
The assaulted resident stated that “the nurse came into the room to get [the assaulting resident] away from me, but that was it. I was assaulted, and they (the facility) told me because [the other resident] was not in his/her right mind, they could not do anything about it.”
The Director of Nursing was asked, “who is responsible for reporting all abuse allegations?” The Director replied, “she was and the Administrator.” The Director confirmed that they were aware of the incident involving both residents. The Director stated that one resident had wandered into another resident’s room who “was hollering for help. Before the staff got to [the hollering resident, the assaulting resident] hit that resident in the mouth.”
The surveyors asked the Director, “when was this was reported to the State?” The Director replied, “it was not reported to the State.” The surveyors asked, “why it was not reported to the State.” The Director stated, “we did not see that as abuse.”
The Director of Nursing indicated that the type of incidents reported to the state included “any abuse, neglect, or fractures of unknown origin.” The Director also indicated that these incidents should be reported: “within twenty-four hours.”
The survey team asked the Director if this assaulting resident had ever had “a problem with hitting in the past, and if so, what was done about it?” The Director replied that this resident “was combative with staff, the staff would wait until he/she calms down and the staff would redirect him/her with activities.” The Director confirmed that they and the Administrator made the decision “not to report this incident to the State.” The Administrator stated that the facility “thought it was not abuse because of [the assaulting resident’s] impaired cognitive status.”
