- Failure to Develop, Write and Use Policies and Forbid Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F224 date May 30, 2017
The state investigators determined “the facility did not intervene when they witnessed another facility staff member’s mistreatment of [a resident]. The facility staff member was observed to grab, restrain, push, shove, and forcibly remove the resident’s left hand from the back of another resident’s wheelchair.”
Also, “the facility did not report their observations.” The surveyors observed security video footage of an incident occurring on April 11, 2017, at approximately 9:00 PM. The video depicts the resident placing “his left hand on the back of a wheelchair another resident was sitting in.”
At that time, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “grabbed the resident’s right arm, restraints it, pushed the resident against the door jam of a resident’s room and forcibly removed the resident’s left hand from the back of another resident’s wheelchair.” The LPN was observed, “shoving the resident into the room while holding each of the resident’s arms down.” Another LPN “was observed standing in the doorway watching the incident.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “was observed walking away from the incident laughing.” Those two individuals, the CNA, and the LPN, “did not intervene. The resident exited the room with the shirt untucked from his slacks and unbuttoned at the bottom.”
The survey team interviewed the Administrator on May 4, 2017, who stated “the Food Service Director reported the incident above that occurred on April 11, 2017. He made the report at approximately 3:00 PM [the following day] after he heard about it from another source. The Administrator stated that she and the Director of Human Resources viewed the security footage of the above incident.”
The Administrator stated that “at the time they were unaware that a second incident occurred on the same day at approximately 9:00 PM. They became aware of the second incident during their interview with [another CNA] regarding the earlier incident. The Administrator stated that [CNA] was instructed that if abuse is witness, it must be reported.”
The facility Administrator stated that “she reviewed the video of the second incident and subsequently terminated [both the LPN and the CNA] from employment because they did not intervene to stop or report abuse.” The Administrator stated that “she did not know why the staff witness incidents and did not report them.”
