- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date June 1, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to implement written policies and procedures for three unidentified residents [to] prevent abuse perpetrated by [a fourth resident].”
The state investigators reviewed the Nurse’s Notes for a resident that revealed that on April 26, 2018, at 10:31 PM, the resident “was being wheeled by [a Certified Nurse’s Assistant (CNA)] [and] passed another female patient sitting in the hallway.” When the resident passed her, “he reached out and squeezed her left breast.” The assaulting resident “continued with [the CNA] down the hall.”
The document indicates that the female patient “was more likely unaware of what happened. The Director of Nursing was informed.” The documentation was signed by “a male Registered Nurse (RN).”
A previous Nurse’s Note dated August 29, 2018, indicated that a female Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) found the sexually aggressive resident “in the corner with another patient, touching her inappropriately and advised him to stop and reported it to the supervisor on the floor.”
A Nurse’s Note dated January 4, 2019, at 6:15 AM revealed that the nurse had observed the sexually aggressive resident “grabbing [a female resident’s] leg and arm. [The female resident] became extremely agitated, yelling at [the resident], cursing, and telling him not to touch her.”
At that time, the nurse told the resident, “not to touch her and moved [the female resident] in front of the supervisor’s office, away from [the sexually aggressive resident].” That resident then “wheeled himself over to the supervisor’s office and began grabbing/rubbing on [the female resident] again.”
When the sexually aggressive resident was told not to touch the female resident, the aggressive resident “began cursing at [the nurse] stating he can do whatever he wants, can touch whoever he wants, and try to stop them.”
