- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date November 9, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to protect three residents from one resident who displayed sexually inappropriate behavior. As a result, the Condition of Immediate Jeopardy and Substandard Quality of Care were identified.” The “facility also failed to protect [another resident] from verbal abuse by a staff member.”
The facility Administrator was informed that a resident “reported to the surveyor that while [another resident] was shaking her hand in the hall, he stated he was going to ‘f--- her.’”
Two additional reports of sexually inappropriate behavior by [the same resident] were also received from two other residents. Also, it was identified that “staff members were aware of some of the sexually inappropriate behavior of [the sexually aggressive resident] and did not report these behaviors to the administration or implement measures to protect the residents. As a result, the condition of Immediate Jeopardy and substandard quality of care were identified.”
The Administrator “was informed of the facility’s failure to protect residents from [the sexually aggressive resident], who exhibited sexually explicit and inappropriate behaviors.”
As a result of the Immediate Jeopardy, the Administrator developed a plan of correction. However, the surveyors informed the Administrator “that the plan of correction did not include all the necessary components to ensure the safety of residents and provide care to those residents who may have been affected by [the aggressive resident’s] sexually inappropriate behaviors.”
A review of monthly nursing summaries revealed that the sexually inappropriate resident “had moderate cognitive impairment, delusions, hallucinations, wanders in the facility, uses a wheelchair, and displays sexual behavior toward female staff.”
The surveyors interviewed a female resident who stated that a man “was sitting in a wheelchair in the hallway and held out his hand to her.” The resident stated that “she thought he was being friendly and went to shake his hand, but he grabbed her hand and pulled them toward his chest stating, ‘I am going to F--- you.’” The resident stated “that there was a nurse in the hallway at the time and believed the nurse witnessed the incident.”
