- 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 28, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure each resident is free from abuse.” The survey team reviewed a report submitted by the facility. The report indicates that “during a physical therapy session, it was reported that profanity was used by an aide.”
The alleged incident involved a Nursing Assistant. The Occupational Therapists stated that the Nursing Assistant was unable to understand the patient. The Aide began yelling from the toilet area and forcibly grabbing and positioning the resident’s arms and legs while cursing profanities at the patient for “not trying at all.”
The Occupational Therapist indicated that eventually, the Nurse Aide unsafely transferred the patient back to the wheelchair. The survey team interviewed the Occupational Therapists who revealed that she went to the resident’s “room first thing in the morning, at approximately 7:30 PM.” The therapist was there to “attempt an occupational therapy session.”
At that time, she found the resident “in the bathroom sitting on the toilet after being transferred by [the Nursing Assistant. The Occupational Therapist informed the Nurse Aide that the resident’s] transfer status was to be transferred with a Hoyer lift.” The occupational therapist stated that “she did not feel comfortable with assisting [the Nurse Aide] with transferring [the resident] packed her wheelchair due to her recommended transfer status for safety purposes.”
The Occupational Therapist continued report that the Nurse Aide attempted to transfer the resident “from the toilet three times and dropped the resident back to the toilet seat due to difficulties. At this time, [the Occupational Therapist reported that the Nurse Aide yelled ‘f***, [the name of the resident], you are not trying.’”
