- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date February 9, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide necessary care and services to [a resident] and preparation for scheduled appointments outside of the facility, of which the facility was aware of or should have been aware. The facility also failed to provide [this resident] care and services in the care areas concerning baths and shaving.”
The deficient practice by the nursing staff “had the potential to affect more than a limited number of residents.” A review of the resident’s medical records indicated that the resident is a paraplegic (paralysis of the legs and lower body).” The resident is “totally dependent for all cares, is legally blind, and newly diagnosed with [other conditions including “compression or pinching of the C5 nerve [spine) that produces numbness, paresthesia (pins and needles), and paralysis of the arm.”
The surveyors attempted to interview the resident who stated that they “did not want to be interviewed at the time.” When the surveyor returned the next day, “the resident was no longer a resident at the facility.” The resident “was transferred to live in another facility and was unavailable for an interview.”
A review of Reportable Events indicated that the Veterans Administration Medical Center notified the facility “of an incident occurring that morning that was reportable to all appropriate agencies. The incident reported to the facility alleged that when Emergency Management Services (EMS) ambulance arrived to take the resident to schedule appointments, the resident was not cleaned up, had no breakfast, [the] catheter needed to be emptied, and the call light was not within reach.”
The VA stated that the resident had said “his head was hitting the side rail on the bed and he was yelling. Someone came and shut the door but did not provide care. The results of the facility’s reportable investigations revealed the allegations were unsubstantiated due to a lack of information provided by EMS.”
The Nurse Aide indicated that the resident had not been cleaned up yet when EMS arrived at approximately 7:00 AM.
