- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation date #F600 March a 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure residents were free from verbal abuse for [one of three residents] reviewed for abuse.” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) Note dated March 5, 2018.
The notation revealed that “staff reported to the Administrator that a housekeeping employee was using inappropriate words toward [a resident].” The investigation involves an incident with the resident occurring on March 4, 2018. The resident stated that “he was trying to apologize for a statement he made to [the housekeeper] a few weeks ago when she became upset and told him to leave her alone.”
The surveyor spoke with the resident who said that “he told [the housekeeper] he was just trying to say he was sorry, but if she did not want to listen then forget about it. The resident stated that [the housekeeper] began cussing at him using the word M----------r multiple times.”
The investigators then interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who indicated that the resident was in the break room with the housekeeper who became irate and walked to the nurse’s station. The housekeeper commented, “you guys need to get his [the resident’s] perverted a--.” At that time, the resident “was trying to apologize to [the housekeeper], and she called the resident a [expletive] pervert, you guys need to get his [expletive] ass out of here.”
The LPN said that “he attempted to apologize [to the housekeeper] for what he said to her earlier, but she would not accept his apology.”
