- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date July 11, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to prevent staff-to-resident physical abuse resulting in bruising, soreness, and fear for [one resident] reviewed for abuse.” The state investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy began when the resident “was physically mishandled during the provision of eating care.”
A Nurse Aide held the resident’s “left arm by the wrist, squeezed it, and shook it repeatedly after dressing her in bed clothes.” A review of the resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the resident “had no cognitive impairment” but needed “extensive assistance for all activities of daily living [except for] independent eating.”
A resident stated during an interview that “she was alone in her room lying in her bed on the evening of Friday, June 1, 2018, the date of the incident.” A Nurse Aide “had just finished helping her into a patient gown. The Aide was squeezing her hand so hard I could see stars.” The resident “told her to stop, but the Aide did not say anything.”
The Nurse Aide then “pulled on [my] arm so hard [I was afraid that it] would pop loose.” The resident said that “the Aide continued to manipulate her arm despite her protests to stop.” The Nurse Aide “had checked her brief during the interaction, but she did not need changing.” The resident characterized the actions of the Nursing Aide as “intentional mishandling.”
