- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies and Procedures That Prevent Abuse, Neglect, and Mistreatment – citation #F607 date April 11, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to include procedures and the abuse policies related to not providing personal care to an alleged sexual abuse victim .” The investigation involved a severely cognitively impaired resident who requires “extensive to total assistance with all Activities of Daily Living, was nonambulatory, and incontinent of bowel and bladder.”
A Nursing Progress Note, dated March 28, 2018, revealed that a Nursing Assistant “reported a male resident was in the resident’s room, standing over her. He was immediately removed from the room and taken back to his room.”
The victim “had no marks and [their] brief was still intact. The resident was resting in bed with safety measures in place.” The Nursing Assistant assigned to provide the resident care, between the 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM Shift, that day said that “she was coming down the hall and saw a walker in the doorway of [the victim’s] room.”
The Nursing Assistant said that “when she got to the room, she observed a male resident standing at the bedside, leaning over [the victim]. The Nursing Assistant further stated that she [could see] the resident’s incontinence brief, but could not see the male resident’s hands.”
The Assistant stated that “the male resident was fully clothed and she did not notice anything unusual about his clothes, but did not notice if his pants were unzipped.” The Nurse Assistant got a nurse, who arrived at the room and told the male resident “to get out.” At that time, the male resident “got his walker and left the room.” The Assistant escorted “him back to his room and asked him what he was doing in the resident’s room and he stated he needed sex.”
The Nursing Assistant returned to the victim’s room and “checked the resident to see if the male resident had done anything to her. The Nursing Assistant further stated that the resident had a brownish discharge that had some light pink material in it and the resident had been incontinent of urine.”
The resident’s family member stated that they wanted the resident to “go to the hospital to be checked, and EMS and the police were called. The resident was sent to the emergency department.”
