- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date December 15, 2016
According to state investigators, the facility “failed to ensure a resident was free from mental abuse” involving “a resident reviewed for abuse, neglect, and exploitation.”
The “resident had been photographed with a cell phone by a staff member. The face of the resident, named in the allegation, was swapped with the face of the staff member. The photo had a caption which read, ‘omg, omg, I look like a gorilla. The photo was then posted to a social media site. This [action] resulted in past noncompliance harm.”
The deficient practice by the nursing staff had the potential to affect all twenty-eight residents that resided in the facility that were identified by the Administrator.
A review of the resident’s Quarterly Assessment documented that “the resident was severely impaired with cognitive skills for daily decision-making and requires extensive assistance with transfers and activities of daily living. The resident was unable to be interviewed due to her cognitive status.”
One “Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) involved in the incident resigned before the investigation of the incident was initiated.” The administration terminated the other CNA involved in the incident. On the same day, “the Director of Nursing was terminated by the administration.”
The “facility owner conducted phone interviews with current and former employees who [knew about] the incident.” Ten cognitive resident questioned documented that “the facility conducted interviews to see if residents felt safe and knew who they can talk to if they felt they had endured abuse.”
The state investigators asked the Administrator “if the staff were told that they could not take photos of the residents. She stated, ‘No, not that she could recall.’ The Administrator verified that it was the Director of Nursing “who was the Abuse Coordinator for the facility” at the time of the incident.
The investigative team interviewed the resident’s husband and asked “how his wife would feel about the photo if she had seen it. He stated he had received numerous phone calls from friends who’d seen the photo on social media.” The husband stated, “this would have humiliated my wife. His friends had told him about the caption under the photo.”
The husband stated that “this was such a hurtful act for someone to due to his wife and she never did anything to hurt others. He stated that she could not speak, but she was aware of what was going on around her. He stated that he could not understand why the Director of Nursing had not taken action when she had been told and shown the photos of his wife.”
