- 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 15, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to protect [one resident] from physical abuse. The situation resulted in [the resident] receiving a noticeable contusion and psychosocial harm of fearfulness of the threat of further harm.”
The resident said that while he was lying in bed sleeping, the alarm turned on and began making noise.” The resident stated that the aggressive resident’s room was close to their room and the aggressive resident entered their room and began punching them in the face “without warning and caused injury to the resident’s nose” when the resident’s nose began to bleed.
The resident told the investigators “he was sent to the hospital for examination of his injuries [and stated that the episode] was the second of two times [the aggressive resident had punched them] in the face at the facility.” The resident said that “he felt the facility was not addressing/punishing [the aggressive resident for hitting them] to prevent further attacks.”
The resident who was assaulted stated “I have a fear, but there is nothing I can do about it! He [the aggressive resident] sits behind me, and he could do anything! He could probably break my neck. I just try to accept it.” The assaulting resident stated that he felt like the former Administrator “was not doing anything to protect [him].”
During an interview with the assaulting resident, that resident indicated that “at the time of the altercation with [the resident], his radio was making noise and the noise bothered [him].” The assaulting resident stated that “because the radio volume was high, I hit him.” The assaulting resident stated that “he said nothing to [the injured resident before hitting the injured resident].”
The assaulting resident stated he had hit the resident an additional time when they were roommates, and he asked the resident to turn down the volume of his radio. The assaulting resident stated that during both altercations, he had hit the injured resident first.
