- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation date #F600 July 31, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure a resident was free from verbal abuse.” According to the incident report dated July 27, 2018, the resident grabbed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) by the shirt collar and the CNA “was verbally abusive to the resident.”
The facility conducted multiple interviews related to the incident and concluded that “the resident grabbed and cursed at [the CNA].” The report indicates that the resident grabbed the CNA by the collar and stated that “you cannot talk to me like that.” The CNA stated that “you are not going to put your f***ing hands on me. The Aide was very unprofessional. As the Aide walked off, she gave the resident the finger, and the resident gave her the finger back.”
The investigator stated that before writing anything down, the CNA came in the office the next morning and “wanted to know why the f***I had not sent out the resident for abusing her. She was very hateful towards me. I asked her to tell me exactly what happened. She told me the resident was upset because I could not take her to smoke.”
The CNA told the investigator that “she grabbed my collar, so I removed her hands and told her she was not going to put her f***ing hands on me.” The investigator asked the CNA “if she used the word f***ing and she said, ‘Yes, ain’t no one going to put their f***ing hands on me. She then stormed out of the office. I got the Assistant Director of Nursing, and we went to find her and told her she was suspended pending an investigation, and I would call her, at which time she was escorted off the property.”
