- Failure to Report and Investigate Any Act or Reports of Abuse, Neglect or Mistreatment of Residents – citation #F225 date August 8, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure incidents of verbal abuse, physical abuse, and sexual harassment were identified, thoroughly investigated, and reported to the appropriate State Agencies.”
This “facility’s failure to identify and investigate allegations of verbal abuse, physical abuse, psychological abuse and sexual harassment also resulted in a failure to ensure alleged victims were protected from further abuse, resulting in actual harm.”
The investigators reviewed a resident’s Nursing Progress Notes of “occurrences in behavior toward other residents.” The events involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident. Other residents completed grievance/concern forms.
On June 15, 2017, one resident stated that “when he is going by [a specific room number, that resident] near the dining room, a man a cowboy hat, yells things at me.” The reporting resident indicates that the verbally abusive resident states “Get the f--- out of the hallway!”
The reporting resident “said he should not have to listen to that or worry about it.” The Masters of Social Work and the Administrator met with the resident to discuss [with the verbally aggressive resident that the reporting resident had] concerns that he had been cursing and yelling at him in the hallway.”
The employees informed the abusive resident “that his behavior is inappropriate and cannot continue.” The aggressive resident “verbalized understanding but also indicated the behavior would continue should he feel it was needed (as evidenced by) him stating, ‘and I will do it again.’” The aggressive resident “verbalized he felt as if he were protecting another resident.”
The reporting resident stated that it “made me afraid because I did not know what he was going to do. That was abusive to me, and my roommate told me this is called verbal abuse, and that is exactly what it was.” The intimidated resident stated that he “did not feel the facility did that much about it.”
