- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date April 2, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to implement policies to protect residents and staff from abuse, when [one resident’s] aggressive behaviors were not immediately addressed, reported, and investigated. These failures increased the risk of harm for all facility residents and staff and allowed [the aggressive resident] to physically abuse another resident and staff.”
As a result, the state investigators made an unannounced visit “to the facility for the investigation of three anonymously linked complaints regarding [the aggressive resident].”
The state investigators observed the resident “sitting up at the bedside while alert, dressed, and mumbling.” The resident “did not acknowledge the staff or surveyor in the room.” The resident’s roommate was “lying in bed next to the door with a confused look on her face.” The aggressive resident’s “other roommate was observed to be alert and quiet, sitting up in a chair next to the farthest bed in the room.” There was a Certified Nursing Assistant “sitting in a chair at the foot of the [aggressive resident’s] bed.”
The CNA in the room stated that the resident “could verbalize and walk and frequently refused or spit out her medications.” The CNA said that the aggressive resident “was moved to this room recently after an altercation with another resident.”
A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “she was assigned to care for [all three residents and said that the aggressive resident] was on multiple medications for her behaviors, frequently refused them, and has struck and bitten staff in the past.”
A review of the aggressive resident’s Medical Records indicated that the staff is to “monitor episodes of scratching/biting every shift.” The staff is also to “monitor episodes of delusions every shift.” The staff is to provide one-on-one supervision “due to the physical aggression toward others and rummaging through other residents’ belongings.”
