- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date April 2, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] has the right to be free from abuse by a failure to develop a Plan of Care addressing the resident’s aggressive behavior with the necessary interventions for the staff to implement and assist in managing the resident’s behavior.”
The nursing home also failed to “closely monitor the resident to prevent her from attacking other residents, [including a specific resident], who was the roommate and was near the resident when the resident was manifesting uncontrolled aggressive behaviors.” The investigators also documented “a failure to develop a Plan of Care with interventions to protect [the roommate] when the aggressive resident, who attacked [the roommate] was moved” into the same room with the roommate.
The staff members helped to “implement interventions to protect [the roommate when the aggressive resident] was manifesting aggressive behaviors for several hours [and failed to inform the aggressive resident’s] Physician when the aggressive resident refused to take her controlling-behavior medications throughout the day. The nursing staff could not control and manage [the resident’s] aggressive behavior.”
As a result of the deficient practice by the nursing staff, the aggressive resident slapped the roommate at 5:30 AM on September 5, 2018, “across her face, causing redness to the left side of her face.” The roommate was left “scared and afraid.”
The investigative team reviewed a Licensed Nurse’s Progress Note completed by a Licensed Vocational Nurse on the 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM shift on September 5, 2018. The notation indicates that the aggressive resident slapped the roommate while the roommate’s slept. The resident hit the roommate so hard that the Licensed Vocational Nurse “thought someone had fallen.”
The facility’s Assistant Director of Nursing verified that the “clinical record lacked the Plan of Care addressing the resident’s aggressive behavior.” Another Licensed Nursing Progress Note indicated that the resident was “pacing the floor and threw juice at her roommate.”
