- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date October 29, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to provide an environment free from physical abuse when [one resident] physically abused [another resident].” A third resident was reported to physically abuse three other residents.
The surveyors determined the facility “failed to provide maintain a safe environment when an agitated resident caused physical harm to another nursing home resident. This deficient practice placed the resident in Immediate Jeopardy.”
The survey team reviewed a resident’s Behavioral Symptoms Care Area Assessment dated March 20, 2018, that shows that the resident “wandered and was exit-seeking. The resident moved to a secure unit.” The resident’s Clinical Record documented “an aggressive incident with another resident on July 6, 2018.” The aggressive resident’s “Care Plan included interventions to direct the staff to provide one on one observation/supervision of the resident until he/she was sent to the local hospital. The staff notified and filed a report with local law enforcement.”
The resident’s October 3, 2018, Care Plan for behaviors directed the staff “to send the resident to the emergency room. Upon return to the facility, the staff placed the resident on one-on-one supervision for 24 hours.” A psychiatrist saw the resident.
After their appointment with the psychiatrist, the aggressive resident’s antipsychotic medication was changed, and the Care Plan was updated to direct staff to approach “in a calm manner, do not attempt to bring to reality and respect personal space. If [the aggressive resident] refused care, we approach in five or ten minutes.”
The nursing staff was instructed to “avoid confrontation when agitated and notify the doctor and family of changes and to rule out medical complications.”
