- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date December 1, 2016
According to state investigators, “an Immediate Jeopardy situation was determined to exist due to the facility’s failure to ensure the residents were free from abuse and protected from abuse.” The failure by the nursing home involved six residents.
Documentation shows that one resident “was verbally abused on multiple occasions.” Two other residents “called that resident fat, a [***], a cow, and said, ‘oink, oink’ as the resident would pass by on multiple occasions.” The “remarks were stated in the common area and were heard by the staff and other residents.”
The documentation shows that “the staff stated other residents would laugh at her [and that] the resident would cry and begin to isolate herself. The resident stated she kept herself in her room for fear of harm.”
The resident told the investigators that “her family did not come to visit her very often due to the situation in the facility. The resident stated she felt she needed to leave the facility.” A Nurse’s Note dated November 11, 2016, documents that “the resident discharged from the facility to relocate to another nursing home.”
A different resident “reported allegations of verbal and physical abuse and sexual harassment by [two residents at the facility].” The resident stated that another resident “played loud music and had used foul language which included ‘GD this and GD that.’ The resident stated [a third resident] had pushed her on the shoulder and she reported this to the Social Service Director and Activity Coordinator. The resident stated that [the physically abusive resident] told the men not to talk to her because she was a ‘dick sucker” and said these things right in front of other residents.”
The allegedly verbally and physically abused resident stated that “she had a hard time holding up her head and the comments made her feel uncomfortable around other men. The resident stated it made her upset and she wanted to cry [and said that] she reported these comments to the Activity Person.”
The allegedly verbally and physically abused resident stated that another resident “had wanted to touch the resident’s breasts and private areas, but she would not let him, and now he called her names. The resident stated older people could not go outside because these residents were outside partying. The resident stated that when she voiced her concerns, the staff ignored the complaints.”
