Abuse and neglect are never acceptable.” Nursing homes “cited for abuse are required to take steps to protect their residents.”

- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date October 16, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect [one resident] from physical abuse when [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) used the resident’s reacher] (a metal rod with the handle at one end and prongs that open to grab objects on the other) to hit her. This deficient practice resulted in [the resident] obtaining bruises on her body and feeling scared in her living environment.”
The state investigators interviewed the resident who said she was in bed when the CNA “came into her room and took cookies from her bedside table, even though [the resident] told her not to take them.” The resident stated that “she grabbed her reacher and hit the CNA’s arm.” The resident said that the CNA “grabbed the reacher from [her] and hit her 2 to 3 times on her right leg and left arm.” The resident stated that “she felt pain.” The investigators further noted that the resident said that “she felt scared and nervous being in the facility after [the abusive CNA] hit her because something might happen to her.”
The investigators interviewed another CNA who stated that “she had gone into the resident’s room to ask for some cookies to give [another] resident since the kitchen was closed.” The resident responded, “no to the request to share her cookies with the other resident.” At that time, the allegedly abusive CNA entered the resident’s room, “reached over and grabbed some cookies off the resident’s bedside table” and used the reacher to hit the resident.
