- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date November 22, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "facility failed to provide five residents, in a universe of 137, an environment free from verbal and physical abuse from [an aggressive resident]. This failure resulted in injuries and feelings of being unsafe and placed the resident in jeopardy [that involved] a severe and negative psychosocial response due to the ongoing presence of an unsupervised resident who could continue to hurt residents while at the facility.”
The Administrator and Director of Nursing “were made aware of the observation, interviews, and documented evidence of [the aggressive resident’s] ongoing behaviors toward facility residents.” The Administrator and Director of Nursing “were informed of the lack of sufficient measures in place to prevent an increasing environment of physical abuse from [the aggressive resident].”
The state investigators determined that “due to the facility’s failure to provide an environment free from physical abuse from [the aggressive resident], the Administrator and Director of Nursing were verbally notified of an Immediate Jeopardy situation.” As a result, the investigators conducted an unannounced visit “at the facility to investigate two complaints regarding resident-to-resident abuse.”
In one incident, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that the aggressive resident “was blind and could be aggressive.” The CNA said that “the nurses were supposed to take him when he went outside his room.”. She stated “[the aggressive resident] would try to hit when somebody was in his pathway.”
At one point, the resident “was observed sitting in a wheelchair at the corner of the outside patio. There were two residents by the shaded area of the patio and three more residents a few feet away from [the aggressive resident]. There was no staff member present on the outside patio.”
Another resident stated that she knew the aggressive resident and said that “she did not want to mess up with him, pointing at [the aggressive resident, stating] ‘if he felt you were near, he will hit you.’” This resident stated that the aggressive resident “would wheel over anybody who tried to be in his way. She stated she heard he hit a female resident, who fell and died.”
