- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date November 8, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to keep [a resident] free from abuse.” A review of the resident’s Behavior Care Plan shows that the resident “becomes combative during shower times and is resistant to care. The Care Plan shows [the resident] is at risk for abuse due to his combative nature.”
Additional documentation and Cognitive Care Plan showed that resident “is non-verbal and unable to follow directions most of the time.” The resident “requires the limited assist of one staff for walking in his room and the corridor and did not use any assistive devices such as a wheelchair or walker.”
The documentation shows that the resident “had an episode of incontinence one morning when two Certified Nursing Aides provided incontinence care. Both CNAs placed [the resident] into a mechanical lift sling to lift them off the bed.” The resident “began pushing his feet off the bed and kicking at the bed, when [a CNA slapped the resident’s] leg.”
The other CNA said that she then lowered the resident “into a shower chair and proceeded to give them a shower.” The CNA “said it was her idea to use a mechanical lift, even though [a resident] does not have it care planned.” The CNA stated that the resident “is usually combative and would not stand.”
The investigators interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who said that she had been working the night shift on that date and “she was never informed of any incident of abuse.” The LPN stated that “if she had been notified, she would have immediately called the Administrator and [the abusive CNA] would have been escorted off the grounds.”
The LPN said that “she was unsure why [both CNAs] would have been using a mechanical lift for [a resident] when he is able to walk on his own.”
