The nursing home “failed to prevent staff-to-resident verbal abuse including a staff member using profanity directed at a resident.” The deficient practice resulted in the resident’s “feelings of anger and dissatisfaction with this care.”
The investigative team reviewed the facility reported incident that was reported to the State Agency that includes an allegation that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) used profanity toward a resident and “through medications on an over the bed table. It was also revealed that [the LPN] was terminated” after the incident was investigated.
In a separate summary statement of deficiency dated May 30, 2018, the nursing home “failed to prevent staff-to-resident abuse for [one resident] following [that resident’s] refusal to loan money to a facility staff member who forcibly bent the resident’s index finger backward.” The staff member’s unacceptable behavior resulted “in a fracture to the right index finger, pain, reduction in the resident’s ability to self-ambulate in the wheelchair, hospital treatment, and mental anguish.”
The “facility staff failed to report an allegation of physical abuse and misappropriation of money to the Administrator (Abuse Coordinator).” The deficient practice resulted “in a delayed investigation, delayed reported to the State Agency, delay treatment for [one resident] and the potential for unidentified and continued abuse.”
