- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date November 30, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure the resident was free from verbal abuse.” A Nursing Note dated June 18, 2016, indicates that “there was an alleged verbal dispute between the resident and a staff member.”
The surveyors reviewed the Reportable Event Form that identified that “the Nursing Supervisor was informed by the Nurse Aide that the 3:00 PM – 11:00 PM [shift] Charge Nurse, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and the resident had a verbal dispute. The facility investigation identified [the LPN] spoke to the resident using vulgar comments, and she stated she was not going to care for a resident.”
The investigation concluded that the “allegation was substantiated and [the LPN] was terminated.” The resident’s five-day MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment identified the resident “had no memory or cognitive defects” and “was upset about an earlier incident and became even more upset due to the medication not being available.”
The terminated LPN had identified that she had informed the 3:00 PM – 11:00 PM Nurse Aide that “she recalled she was in the hallway and she heard yelling coming from the resident’s room.” At that time, she identified the verbally abusive LPN’s voice involving a conversation related to the resident requesting their medication.
The LPN “came out of the resident’s room yelling and cursing.” The Nurse Aide stated that “she reported this to the 3:00 PM – 11:00 PM [shift] Nursing Supervisor.” A Registered Nurse (RN) identified that the verbally abusive LPN “was off the unit when she was informed of the incident, so she instructed her to remain in the office until further notice and notify the Director of Nursing.” The RN stated that the resident “told her he/she was defending himself and the nurse was defending herself.”
