- Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date October 7, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure the appropriate number of staff was provided care to prevent mistreatment or rough handling.” The investigation involved a resident who “was dependent for activities of daily living.”
A review of the Reportable Event Form identified a Nurse Aide “reported to the Charge Nurse that she witnessed another Nurse Aide handle the resident in a rough manner.” The Nurse Aide who reported the incident identified that a second Nurse Aide was guiding the resident’s “legs during the transfer [when] the resident complained, saying, ‘you are hurting my legs.’”
The witnessing Nurse Aides allege that rough handling had occurred.” The Reporting Nurse Aide indicated that when she entered the room to help prepare a Hoyer lift for transfer, the resident “was already screaming.” The allegedly abusive Nurse Aide stated that “the resident was screaming in pain while [the other Nurse Aide handled] the resident roughly.”
The Nurse Aide felt that the abusive other Nurse Aide “was handling the resident roughly and should have stopped when the resident complained of pain.” The surveyors interviewed the Corporate Clinical Quality Specialist, a Registered Nurse (RN), who identified that “the facility could not substantiate the allegation of rough handling because the resident had denied the rough handling when questioned.”
However, the Registered Nurse stated that the allegedly abusive Nurse Aide “should have stopped care when the resident was complaining of pain.” The allegedly abusive Nurse Aide “was in-serviced [retrained] regarding if the resident complaints of pain during care, the care should be stopped, and the Charge Nurse [should be] notified.”
