Failure to Provide Care for Residents That Builds or Maintains Their Dignity and Respect of Individuality - citation date May 26, 2017
According to investigators, "the facility failed to promote care for two residents in a manner that maintains and enhances each resident's dignity and respect in full recognition of his or her individuality. This failure resulted in psychological harm" for a resident who stated in an interview that "some staff threatened her that if she doesn't act right, they are going to put her back in the locked unit."
The resident stated that "she wants to go to an assisted living so I and going to keep quiet so I can get out of here." The survey team conducted an initial interview with the resident who revealed that "the staff 'don't talk to me right and they walk in the room without knocking!'" The resident said a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) walked in on her roommate "one time when she was naked."
Documentation shows that the moderately cognitively impaired resident "was assessed as exhibiting the behavior of rejecting care, one to three days [during a] seven days look back period. The resident received antidepressant medication seven out of seven days."
During an interview with a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), it was revealed that the LPN "typically works the day shift [and that the resident] had not exhibited any behaviors lately and she has been stable." The LPN said that the resident "did have some behaviors at one time and was on the Secured Unit, but she did not remember specific details."
During an interview with the resident, it was revealed that "the staff had been okay the past several days [saying that] the staff has been on their P's and Q's because the State [surveyors] is present." The resident stated that "the staff had been knocking on the door before entering a room [and said that] her main promises the way the staff talks to her. She stated that if she is not on the list for a Walmart outing and she asked the activity Director why she cannot go, she answered that other residents want to go, and you cannot go every time."
