The state investigative team determined that “the facility did not ensure residents were free from physical abuse. This [deficiency of the nursing staff affected one resident] reviewed in the facility self-reported incidents.
Documentation revealed an incident occurred at the facility at 11:15 PM when a resident “reported to a Registered Nurse (RN) that a State-tested Nursing Assistant slapped the resident on his hand twice. The report revealed [the Aide] woke the resident to take his vitals and when the resident refused, stating they do not take my vitals at night.”
At that time, the Aide “attempted to proceed with the vital signs check [when the Aide] slapped the resident’s hand. The report revealed when [the resident] told the [Aide] to leave his room, [the aide] slapped the resident’s hand again.”
Surveyors interviewed the facility Administrator who provided the facility investigation, including an interview with the resident’s roommate. During the interview, the Administrator confirmed the roommate corroborated the resident’s “story and stated he heard two slaps. The Administrator confirmed the abuse incident occurred and stated the incident occurred [before] the recent change in leadership in the facility.”
The survey team determined that the facility “failed to prevent an incident of physical abuse toward [the resident].” The facility failed to follow their Abuse, Neglect, and Misappropriation of Patient Property policy from 2012, that revealed: “no one should be subjected to abusive behavior and revealed physical abuse includes hitting, slapping, pinching, and kicking.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure [a resident’s] wound care was completed according to Physician’s orders.” The resident’s Skilled Nursing Progress Note dated September 10, 2018, indicated that the “resident skin was assessed and the resident was admitted with an unstageable pressure wound to the sacral area measuring 5.0 cm x 7.0 cm by less than 0.25 cm that was black and gray in color.”
However, a review of the resident’s Medication Administration Records and Treatment Administration Records revealed “no evidence the resident sacrum pressure ulcer wound was completed on September 10, 2018, during the day shift, September 12, 2018, during the day shift, September 14, 2018, during the day shift, and September 19, 2018, during the day shift.”
