- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 19, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure a resident was free from physical and verbal abuse.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) submitted a written statement saying that they had asked a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to see if the resident wanted a shower.
The LPN “went into the resident’s room and physically got the resident out of bed.” The resident “began hitting the LPN.” The CNA told the LPN, “it was okay. They could shower the resident another day. The resident hit the LPN and the LPN’s glasses flew to the floor.”
At that time, the LPN “forced the resident onto a shower chair. The resident told the LPN he wanted to lie down.” The CNA “came into the room to assist by holding the shower chair. The LPN began rough range of motion exercises on the resident’s arms and asked the resident if he was done.”
At some point, the “LPN’s stethoscope broke.” The CNA stepped out, and another CNA “came into the resident’s room. The LPN proceeded to move the resident to the shower room, while the resident was still resisting.”
The LPN “roughly unclothed the resident. When the resident started punching the Licensed Practical Nurse, the LPN placed the resident’s shirt roughly against the resident’s throat.”
The resident “did not want [a third CNA to provide the shower. The LPN then began to roughly wash the resident and sprayed water in the resident’s face.” The CNA “noticed two skin tears on the resident’s right arm.” The first CNA “came in and took over showering the resident.”
The CNA who left the room “waited approximately thirty minutes to go to the front to report the incident. The only person she saw upfront was [a fourth CNA, who] reported the incident to the Director of Nursing.”
The Administrator and Director of Nursing confirmed that the Licensed Practical Nurse had been terminated from the facility “for physical abuse to [the resident].”
