- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 17, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "did not have adequate supervision to prevent a resident-to-resident altercation. This failure had the potential of causing mental and physical harm to [the injured resident].” Both residents were long-term patients at the facility. However, the injured resident “regressed to her first language [and] was not responding to English.”
The investigators reviewed the Final Report for a Resident-to-Resident altercation that occurred on March 11, 2019 at approximately 3:45 AM. One resident was found in another resident’s room and a Certified Nursing Assistant witnessed one resident hitting the other resident “with an open hand.”
The Director of Nursing stated the resident who was struck “is frequently yelling out for long periods and most often at night.” This resident “[was] yelling in a foreign language and the yells are loud and gut-wrenching.” This resident’s “facial expression is sad [and the resident] does not always respond when staff try to meet her needs.”
The assaulting resident said that the injured resident “was yelling ‘help me.’ I went to the resident’s room to talk to the roommate to calm her down. The resident started yelling at her. I turned to [the resident] and I hit her. I hit her with the back hand to the shoulder. I hit her to try to wake her up and maybe change her focus and to stop yelling.”
The assaulting resident stated to the surveyors that “the call lights are not answered for five to twenty minutes and no one comes to check the screaming unless I put on the call light.” The assaulting resident stated “I am not getting the sleep I need. Other residents on this hall wake me up with their calls for help but [the injured resident] screams for long periods of time.”
