According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure an environment free of verbal abuse for residents” that affected three residents and resulted in “the potential for humiliation and degradation of residents.” The investigators interviewed one resident and asked that they remember the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). The resident responded that the CNA “swore all the time at the residents.”
When speaking about the situation, the resident stated that they, “would cry when speaking to the staff about the CNA.” The investigators interviewed the Facility Administrator who verified that they believed that the CNA “was verbally abusive to [three residents].”
The nursing home “failed to accurately communicate the family event that involves the laceration under the eye of [one resident] reviewed for family notification.” The deficient practice by the nursing home resulted “in the family not being made aware of the resident-to-resident incident.”
The survey team conducted an interview over the telephone with one of the resident’s interested parties who said that the “family was told [that the resident] fell and that was not how she got caught under her eye.” The facility’s investigation documentation shows that the resident was observed “being wheeled out of the dining room by staff bleeding from the left temporal area. The resident was asked about what had occurred in the resident responded, ‘he hit me with a fork.’”
The assaulting resident stated that another resident “punched him four times before he took a bowl and hit her arm.” The aggressive resident “denied striking the other resident in the face.” A review of the facility Occurrence Report shows that there is no circle involving questions about “if the Physician and family/power of attorney was notified.”
