- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Abuse, Mental Distress, Physical Punishment and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F 600 date May 15, 2018

The nursing home “failed to ensure the resident was free from physical abuse.” The incident involved a cognitively intact resident with “verbally behavioral symptoms toward others.”
The survey team reviewed a Self-Reported Incident Report that documents “an allegation of physical abuse was substantiated by the facility involving [a Social Worker and a former resident].” The report indicated that the Social Worker was speaking with the resident in the office of the Admission/Marketing Director with the Director present. At that time, the resident “came into the room and interrupted the conversation [swiping at the Social Worker and the Social Worker swiping the] back of the resident.
The report indicated that this action was “normal gesturing between” the Social Worker and the resident, and “at first, the thought was the gesturing was in a joking manner.” However, the resident “later complained of pain in his arm” to the Administrator. It was noted in the Self-Report Incident Report that the Social Worker “was suspended pending an investigation.”
A witness statement by the Admissions Marketing Director reveals that the resident “came into the office yelling at her to get him a cigarette. The statement revealed it was explained to the resident there were not any cigarettes in her office and that he did not need to yell.” The Marketing Director stated that she heard the Social Worker yell, “‘do not touch me again’ indicating she proceeded as a playful act.”
However, the Social Worker jabbed on the resident shoulder in the resident “stated his arm hurt and it was reported to the Administrator.”
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure incontinence care was provided every two hours and [promptly].” This deficient practice affected five residents “who were reviewed for personal hygiene care.”
In one incident, the resident was observed “lying in bed with a sheet covering his body. He indicated he was wet and not been changed since earlier in the morning.” About 50 minutes later, the resident “was observed receiving incontinence care.” At that time, the resident indicated “he was [still] wet and had not been changed since earlier in the morning.”
Approximately fifty minutes later at 10:20 AM, “the resident was observed receiving incontinence care. Two State-Tested Nursing Assistants (STNAs) provided care. When the resident’s incontinence brief was removed, it was “soaked with urine. The resident also had a medium-sized bowel movement.”
The investigators interviewed one of the STNAs who stated that “the resident drank multiple drinks of milk and juice at breakfast and verified she last changed the resident at 6:50 AM” which had been longer than two hours. The STNA “further verified resident should be checked and changed every two hours.”
