- Failure to Provide Care for Residents in a Way That Keeps or Builds Each Resident’s Dignity and Respect of Individuality – citation #F241 date July 1, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to promote care for [one resident] in a manner and environment that maintains the resident’s dignity and respect.” The investigation involved a resident with no cognitive impairment who “was incontinent of bowel and not currently on a bowel toileting program to manage the resident’s bowel incontinence.”
The state investigators interviewed the resident who stated that she had requested a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “to change her brief” that she had soiled with feces. However, the CNA informed the resident that “she would assist her after she had finished assisting the nurse with another resident.” The resident stated that “she waited for [the CNA] to return and change her soiled brief, but she never returned because her shift had ended.” The resident stated that “she was left sitting in her feces for three hours.”
A different CNA had received a report that the day shift CNA stated the resident “had to have her soiled brief changed because she was too busy to change her.” The second CNA had “stated that she did not change her until an additional forty-five minutes later into her evening shift. By this time, [the resident] had driven herself in her electric wheelchair to the nurse’s station, upset and crying.”
The investigators interviewed the first CNA who stated that she did tell the resident “that she would assist her after she was finished helping the nurse with another resident, but she was very busy with the other resident and did not have time to return to help [the resident].” That CNAs then said that “the facility gets upset with them if they stay over time. She then said that she did not leave the resident in that condition for three hours on purpose, but she could not go back and help [the resident] during her shift.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that “she expected the staff to stay over and finish off their work to get the approval needed from the Charge Nurse.”
