- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 9, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that a resident has a right to be free from abuse.” The cognitively intact resident’s Progress Notes revealed that on November 17, 2018, the resident “reported an allegation of abuse to oncoming morning staff at 7:30 AM.” The staff documented that the patient reported “being punched in the stomach, poked in the right eye, and having the left wrist grabbed.”
The report indicates that the patient was physically shaken “when reporting the incident. The patient has a skin tear to the left wrist [measuring] 5.0 cm x 4.0 cm. The skin is unable to be approximated. The wound bed is red and moist.”
The documentation also showed there was “a moderate amount of blood to the sleeve of the left arm and on the patient’s bedding. The right eye is red and swollen. The patient denies pain to the abdomen, but the abdomen is slightly firm.” The patient was sent to the hospital for an evaluation “due to the use of Xarelto and a skin tear. Wound care was performed [before transport] to the hospital. The Unit Manager notified the Director of Nursing and notified the police department.”
A review of the resident’s Progress Notes revealed that on November 17, 2018, the resident “is in good spirits and wanted to know if that man would be in the facility tonight.” The LPN reassured the resident that the man “would not be.”
A review of the Emergency Room Discharge Summary Note revealed that the resident “was evaluated for injuries sustained from alleged assault from a staff member. Documentation revealed minimal ecchymosis [skin discoloration caused by bleeding underneath] to the right lateral wrist.
The investigation report identified the Licensed Nursing Assistant as a tall skinny guy with glasses that “punched me in the gut, poked me in the eye, and grabbed my wrist.”
