- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date April 17, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] was protected from verbal, physical, and mental abuse by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) on October 25, 2017. This [failure] had the potential to negatively impact [the resident’s] emotional and psychological health and lead to potential negative, clinical outcomes.”
A review of the severely cognitively impaired resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that “she was independent with activities of daily living with set up assistance and had physical behavioral symptoms [involving] hitting, biting, and scratching and the rejection of care.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan dated August 22, 2017 indicated that the resident “had behavioral problems with episodes of hitting staff and threatening other residents. The Care Plan instructed the staff to minimize disruptive behaviors by offering tasks which divert attention.”
A Progress Note dated October 25, 2017, at 4:45 AM documented by a Licensed Nurse noted that a Certified Nursing Assistant reported that another CNA grabbed the resident “around the neck because the resident was being combative. The Progress Note indicated that [the aggressive CNA] told the resident ‘if you hit me, it will be the last thing you do.’”
The investigative team interviewed the Licensed Nurse who stated that the reporting CNA had described the aggressive CNA’s actions immediately but said it was the end of the shift and the aggressive CNA “left immediately and [the nurse] was unable to speak to her about the allegation.”
The reporting CNA stated that they told the aggressive Certified Nursing Assistant to let go of the resident, saying, “we are done here, get out.” The CNA then “left the room and then left the facility.”
