- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date February 8, 2019
The state investigative team determined that “the facility staff failed to protect a resident from sexual abuse.” This “failure had the potential to affect all residents in the facility.” As a result, the investigators determined a finding of an Immediate Jeopardy.
The investigators reviewed the resident’s medical record revealing that the resident “had been discharged from the facility for inpatient psychiatric care from February 2, 2017, until February 23, 2017.” The hospital Physician Note indicated that the resident “had been wandering into other patients’ rooms and exposed himself to another resident.”
The resident’s current medical record dated February 4, 2019, indicated that the resident requires one on one staff observation. The resident “had a Care Plan with the focus of inappropriate dressing/undressing (found the resident in another resident (female) room with genitals exposed) related to cognitive impairment.”
However, “there was no documentation in the medical record that the resident was receiving a one-on-one staff observation.” Additionally, the facility Administrator confirmed that “facility staff failed to report an incident of alleged abuse that occurred on February 2, 2019, to the Office of Health Care Quality and the local police until February 5, 2019.”
In a separate summary statement dated January 24, 2018, it was determined that “the facility staff failed to report an allegation of abuse immediately to the Administrator of the facility.” This investigation revealed that a resident had told the nurse that they were accusing a Geriatric Nursing Assistant of “sexually inappropriate contact.”
Through statements obtained from the staff, “the facility investigation concluded that [the nurse told the supervisor] of the allegation of sexually inappropriate contact, but that [the Supervisor] failed to report the allegation to the facility Administrator or the Director of Nursing until fourteen hours after the event took place.”
