- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date October 28, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility did not protect a resident from resident to resident sexually inappropriate behavior. Specifically, there were no effective interventions put into place to prevent a recurrence of physical, sexual contact for a severely cognitively impaired resident.” The incident involved a sexually aggressive cognitively intact resident who is “socially inappropriate with female staff at times, and the approach was to remind the resident to respect the female staff.”
The investigators reviewed the Integrated Progress Notes for the sexually aggressive resident written by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). The document included that “the resident continued to be sexually inappropriate with staff, showing them his penis and saying, ‘I know you wanna touch it.’”
Documentation revealed that the resident “was sitting in the hall with [the other resident] and had her touch his genitals as he was doing the same to her. The LPN explained to [the sexually aggressive resident] that this was inappropriate without success. Review of the medical record revealed note interventions were put in place at that time.”
Additionally, the documentation for the assaulting resident “does not include any Notes about [a previous incident with the sexually aggressive resident].”
A review of the 24-hour Report dated October 12, 2016, “included an evening shift entry for [the sexually aggressive resident] that the resident was sexually inappropriate with a resident and staff.” A review of all Incident and Accident Reports “for the last three months did not include one for the October 12, 2016, incident.” A report from the day before “included that two staff observe [the sexually aggressive resident] with his hands inside of [the assaulting resident’s] pants and brief, and [that resident] had her hand inside [the sexually aggressive resident’s] pants and brief in the West II Hallway.”
The evening LPN documented at 2:04 PM that the sexually aggressive resident “can give consent, but [the female resident] cannot. She said within the last month she saw the two residents sitting together in the hallway and overheard [the sexually aggressive resident] explain to [the assaulting resident], ‘if you touch it, it will get hard.’”
