- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date February 1, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home failed to ensure one resident “was free from physical abuse when [the resident] was slapped in the face several times by another resident. This failure resulted in [the injured resident] sustaining facial injuries and placed [the resident] at risk for increased emotional distress.”
A licensed nurse at the facility stated that on July 14, 2018 she “was sitting at the Nurse’s Station when she heard a loud pop and heard [the assaulting resident] screaming at [the injured resident].” The nurse stated “she ran into [the aggressive resident’s] room and observed [the injured resident] standing in the doorway of [the assaulting resident’s] room holding his face and crying. She stated she observed [the aggressive resident] standing next to his bed complaining that [the injured resident] was by his room.”
The licensed staff member stated she immediately took the injured resident “back to his room and noted he had red welts on his face, cheek, and eyelid, which were tender to the touch.” The aggressive resident stated that the injured resident “came into his room all the time and he would yell at him to get out.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated October 31, 2018, the facility “failed to ensure [two residents were] not neglected when a change of condition and increase in comfort needs were not addressed. This [failure] resulted in both residents experiencing discomfort and their life choices not being respected.”
A review of one resident’s health care records indicated end-of-life requests which stated that “he wanted Comfort Care only and read, ‘I want hospice and no pain, Comfort Care only.’” The resident’s Physician’s orders included “relieve pain and suffering with medication by any route as needed.” The resident’s Care Plan for pain showed “complaints of pain would be treated and maintained at a level no greater than four of ten. It showed the Physician would be notified of modifications of medications if not effective.”
A review of the Skilled Daily Nurse’s Note indicated that the resident had a temperature of 100.7 and generalized pain. The resident was nauseous and vomiting. However, there was no intervention listed for his tachyonic (rapid breathing) that had been occurring throughout the night.
