- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date November 5, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to prevent incidents of abuse and ensure that staff was not verbally abusive toward residents when it was alleged that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) yelled at a resident.”
The survey team interviewed the resident on the morning of November 2, 2018. At that time, the resident said that a CNA “screamed and yelled at him/her about having too much stuff in his/her room.” The resident said the CNA “slammed a walker into a wall in his/her room.”
The resident said that “when he/she went to the nurse’s station and reported that the CNA screamed and yelled at him/her, [the CNA] yelled at him/her again and told him/her that he/she should not be discussing this incident.” The resident said that the CNA “tried to intimidate him/her [saying that] he/she retreated from the situation because he/she was afraid that further conversation would escalate [the CNA].”
The resident stated that other staff members at the nurse’s station witnessed the CNA yelling at him/her. A nurse indicated that the resident “came to the nurse’s station and asked who his/her nurse was because he/she wanted to make a complaint about [the CNA].” The written statement indicated that the CNA “came down the hall and started yelling at the resident not to talk about him/her.”
The nurse stated to the surveyor that in hindsight “she did not think that the CNA yelled at the resident [saying] that when she discussed the alleged incident with the Director of Nursing and wrote her statement, she chose her words poorly.”
The nurse indicated that in hindsight, although the CNA “raised her voice and spoke in frustration toward the resident, she did not think the CNA yelled at the resident.” The survey team interviewed the allegedly abusive CNA by telephone who said: “any allegation was an unreal fishing expedition and abruptly terminated the telephone call.”
It was determined that on November 4, 2018, “the facility was found to be in past noncompliance” the required a Plan of Care correction.
