- Failure to Honor the Resident’s Right to Voice Grievances without Discrimination or Reprisal – citation #F585 date March 29, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to investigate a grievance reported by a resident within a timely manner.” This “failure had the potential to affect [this resident’s] psychosocial and emotional well-being.”
The resident stated during an interview that approximately three weeks ago, “a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was helping her with the shower. The shower was shared between Rooms 9 and 11.” The resident stated that “she was completely nude in the shower, and a Physical Therapist walked into the shower without knocking and saw her completely naked.”
The resident further stated that she asked the Physical Therapist “to please leave the room and close the door.” The resident stated that the therapist “did not leave the room when she asked her to go.” The resident said that the physical therapist “did not apologize and said, ‘I am just coming in to get toilet paper for my resident.’”
The resident stated “she did report this incident to the female Social Worker” but was unable to state the name of the Certified Nursing Assistant, Physical Therapist, or Social Worker. The investigative team interviewed the Social Service Assistant and asked if the resident “had ever spoken with her about someone walking in on her without knocking while she was undressing in the shower?” The Social Worker replied, “Yes, [the resident] did come to see me a few weeks ago and told me about it. I asked her to write out a grievance form, and she said that she would do that.”
The Social Worker had said that she had seen the resident “in the hallway a few days later and reminded her to fill out the grievance form.” The Social Services Assistant said that the “Social Service Department will not do anything until the grievance is written.” A review of the Social Service Department Grievance Log has no entries for March that was left completely blank.
The investigators talked to the Social Service Director, who stated that any employee that would walk into the shower without knocking in the presence of a completely nude exposed resident “would require retraining and counseling.”
