- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 14, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect a cognitively impaired resident from physical abuse inflicted by [another] cognitively impaired resident.” The investigation involved a resident who “experienced pain, bruising, and swelling to the right eye as a result of being hit by [an abusive resident].”
The survey team initiated an Immediate Jeopardy situation that “began on March 3, 2018, when [one resident hit another resident] in the face.” The assault on the victim resulted in [the assaulted resident] “ being physically injured, requiring pain medication, and having an assessment [done] at the emergency room after the trauma.”
The investigators reviewed documentation that showed the aggressive resident was “moderately cognitively impaired with physical behaviors.” The aggressive resident “had ineffective coping skills, aggression, combativeness related to cursing, hitting, grabbing staff, and verbal/physical aggression toward other residents at times.”
The Incident Report from February 28, 2018, revealed that the aggressive resident “was in the hallway and verbally argued with another resident .” A nurse heard them arguing and heard one resident state, “get out of my room.” The nurse heard a female resident yelling, “someone shoot him.”
The nurse then saw one resident hitting another resident “in their face.” The nurse ran over to separate them. The nurse said she told the aggressive resident, “you do not hit anyone.” The nurse asked the male resident what was wrong, and why did he hit her. The male responded, “she was in my room” when “clearly, she was not. They were both in the hallway, near his doorway.”
The investigators interviewed the facility Administrator ten days after the incident. The Administrator revealed that “she was not aware of the February 28, 2018 incident, where [the male resident struck the female resident], until she was notified by [the nurse] on March 3, 2018.”
