- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date October 10, 2017
The state investigators determined “the facility failed to ensure the safety of residents from physical and verbal abuse.” In one case, a resident reported that a Registered Nurse (RN) “had verbally and physically abused her roommate.”
The reporting resident told the Social Worker, and the facility “initiated an investigation regarding verbal abuse but did not investigate the allegation of physical abuse.”
An anonymous family member of the resident along with a Nurse Aide “witnessed the verbal abuse by the RN. The Nurse Aide “attempted to report the incident to the Director of Nursing. The facility failed to protect the resident or conduct an investigation.
A second resident reported that a Nursing Aide had “verbally abused him [and reported the incident to another Nurse Aide who reported the allegation to a second RN.” In this incident, the “facility failed to protect the resident or conduct an investigation of the allegation.”
The state investigators notified the Administrator that an Immediate Jeopardy existed. It was based on “the Center’s failure to identify and report allegations of physical and verbal abuse [timely]; to protect residents from potential harm during the investigative process, and to implement facility policy and procedures regarding abuse.”
When the allegation of verbal abuse was brought to the attention of the Administrator and Director of Nursing, one resident “was assessed by the Assistant Director Nursing [and had] no signs or symptoms identified.”
The nurse that was involved in the incident “was suspended at the time of the allegation.” However, the Administrator stated that the investigation “was unable to substantiate verbal abuse, and the nurse had returned to work.” The nurse was again “suspended regarding the allegation of physical abuse [with] the investigation initiated by the Administrator.”
One assaulted resident was assessed by the licensed Social Worker but exhibited no signs of “fearfulness, guarding or cheerfulness.” The Social Worker said that there were “no signs or symptoms noted.” The aggressive resident “no longer resides in the center.”
