- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date July 6, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility did not ensure the resident’s rights to be free from physical abuse [for one resident] reviewed for resident-to-resident altercations.” Specifically, this resident had a history of wandering into another residents’ room and walked into another resident’s room. That resident “had a history of physically abusive behavior and [pushed the wandering resident] to the floor resulting in [injury].”
The investigation involved a severely impaired resident who “had no mood or behavior symptoms. He requires extensive assistance with transfer and uses a wheelchair for mobility.” However, the resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan documented the resident’s behavior as “an actual aberrant behavior evidenced by hitting staff and cursing. Interventions included to administer medication as ordered, keep the Physician informed of the resident status, psychiatric and psychological consultations, monitor relationship with other residents, anticipate needs, and positive reinforcement.”
The Nursing Progress Note documented that the resident “attacked another resident and hit him on his back while the resident was passing by him. The staff separated both residents and told [the aggressive resident] the stop.”
The Resident-to-Resident Altercation (Abuser) report documented that the aggressive resident was involved “in actual abuse or and hit another resident. Interventions included to remove the resident from situations utilizing calm approach immediately and provide one on one supervision until [they calm] him.”
Documentation shows that the aggressive “resident was moved to another unit and he was referred to a psychiatrist. No specific staff was assigned to monitor, frequency, or method of monitoring to prevent altercations with other residents were designated.”
The investigators noted that the Resident Care Profile “lacked documented evidence of a history of resident-to-resident altercation and the monitoring needs.” Other documentation indicated that the resident “was combative during care and hit a staff member on her left side.” The Updated Care Plan noted that “the resident hit staff on the face and staff was reinstructed [how] to approach the resident” calmly.
The other resident “was a potential victim related to her inability to protect herself.” One intervention was to remove the female resident from the situation and encourage verbalization of feelings.
