- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date December 31, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to provide care [in a manner] that the resident did not feel abused, neglected, or mistreated.” This investigation involved a resident with short-term and long-term memory deficits, who “requires two-person assistance with turning and repositioning while in bed and transfers in and out of bed and [wheel]chair.”
The resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident “was at risk for skin breakdown due to impaired mobility along with bowel and bladder incontinence.” The Reportable Event Form dated September 21, 2018, identified the Charge Nurse was “notified by a Nurse Aide that she had not done care on [the resident], at which time the Nurse Aide stated to the Nurse she should tell the other Nurse Aide to go in to take care of [the resident].”
The Charge Nurse realized that the resident “had not received incontinence care or had been repositioned. The report indicated the Charge Nurse and another Nurse Aide went into [the resident’s] room, changed, and reposition the resident. The report identified the Charge Nurse assessed the resident’s skin and found no redness and the skin was intact.”
The Nurse Aide “was suspended pending the investigation.” Eventually, the Nurse Aide “was suspended for three days, given a final written warning, and was educated on meeting the resident’s needs.” A Registered Nurse (RN) indicated that “on the morning of September 21, 2018, at approximately 6:45 AM, a Nurse Aide reported to him that she did not provide care to [the resident] during the night shift.”
At no time did the Nurse Aide “request assistance with providing care or inform the Charge Nurse that [the resident] did not receive incontinent care or was turned and repositioned until the end of the 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM shift.”
