The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the allegation was reported immediately to the Administrator or designee.” A Nurse’s Note dated May 18, 2019, indicated that the resident “was lethargic in the morning but able to eat a honey bun and two cups of apple juice.”
The note identified the resident “was awakened by staff at lunchtime, however, refused to have lunch.” The note indicated that the “Charge Nurse attempted to feed [the resident] during lunch. However, the resident refused and punched the Nurse in the abdomen while swearing at the Charge Nurse.” The nursing staff transferred the resident to the hospital “for a change in condition.”
The Reportable Event Form of the next day indicated the resident had “called from the hospital and reported to the Administrator that a staff member hit him/her at the time, when the resident was unable to defend him/herself. The investigation identified the incident had occurred on May 18, 2019, during the 7:00 AM through 3:00 PM shift.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure the resident was free from verbal or mental abuse.” The resident’s Care Plan identified the resident as having “depression related to dementia.”
The Reportable Event Form dated January 27, 2019, indicated that the resident “had approached a Nurse Aide who was sitting behind the nursing station desk. The resident said something to the Nurse Aide, and at the time the Aide stood up, told the resident ‘I am going to f--- you up’ and the Nurse Aide then left the building.”
The Charge Nurse, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) working the 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM shift indicated that the resident “was looking through the trash can for an envelope with three dollars.” The resident went behind the nursing station, and the Nurse Aide stood up, “pointed a water bottle at the resident and told the resident, ‘I am going to f--- you up.’”
