- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date December 29, 2016
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure [a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)] did not yell, curse, use obscenities, and physically threaten [one resident] saying ‘I will have my boyfriend shoot you,’ after [the resident] had expressed concerns about [the CNA] pouring urine out of the urinal into his sink. This [failure resulted in the resident] becoming filled with anxiety and created an intense fear for his life, which resulted in a loss of sleep, and forced them to leave the facility before being medically cleared by his Physician.”
The state investigators made an unannounced visit to the facility “to investigate an allegation that [the CNA] verbally abused and threatened [the resident].” The resident had stated that “the other night around 2:00 AM, in the morning, he saw [the CNA] emptying and rinsing a urinal in his sink.” The resident stated he told the CNA “that he washed his face in the sink and that what she was doing was unsanitary. The resident stated [the CNA] told him ‘shut up and to drop dead.’”
The resident “became upset by [the CNA's] words and began to argue with her when [the CNA] started to yell louder and louder by using obscene language.” The CNA “then told the resident, ‘I will have my boyfriend shoot you.’”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated April 4, 2017, the facility failed to ensure that a CNA “did not physically abuse [one resident] by hitting him with his hand on the left side of his face, causing swelling and purplish discoloration after [the resident] asked for food. This deficient practice has the potential to cause feeling fearful, frightful, and helpless, and had the potential to place other residents at risk for ongoing physical, verbal, and psychological abuse.”
The resident stated through an interpreter that “the male nurses came inside the room and stated, ‘I came here already’ and then hit him in his face.” The resident, “while speaking, also balled up his hand to make a fist and demonstrated to the surveyor how he was hit.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “when she got to the room right away, she noticed swelling and redness to the resident’s right cheek, and the resident was speaking his native language (Spanish) in a loud tone while pointing at his face.”
