- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce Policies That Prevent Mistreatment, Neglect or Abuse of Residents – citation #F226 date October 25, 2016
The state investigators determined the nursing home failed to thoroughly “investigate and address an allegation of alleged sexual abuse of [one resident].” Two residents “reported the allegation to the State Agency.”
The investigative team documented that the Stage I question response to “have you ever seen anyone being sexually abused, the resident responded, ‘Yes.’” The “resident identified [that the other resident] of the alleged abuse was his/her roommate. The resident then stated that a male resident had lifted his/her roommate’s covers and placed his/her hands between the resident’s legs.”
The reporting resident stated that this incident “occurred while they were in the hall. He/she could not identify the male but knows that he is a resident of the facility.” The reporting resident stated they had told a Certified Nursing Assistant of the incident.
The reporting resident added that the “manager came, took me to his/her office, and asked me about the incident, and I told him/her what I saw. I do not know what happened after that.”
The surveyors attempted to interview the other resident who “is nonverbal and was unable to respond to queries.” An employee was interviewed and queried “whether the facility was aware of [the reporting resident’s] allegation of sexual abuse. The employee responded, ‘Yes’ and added [that] according to the resident the incident took place during the extermination of the resident’s room, and all the residents were out of the rooms.”
The employee stated, “We investigated the allegation, but the resident’s information could not be corroborated.” The employee stated, “we looked at the video camera, but we did not see anything.”
The employee was then asked whether the investigation was documented. He/she responded, ‘Yes.’ A copy of the investigation was requested. The employee was also queried whether the Incident Report had been sent to the State Agency. The employee stated “he/she did not know, as he/she was not on duty at the time of the allegation.”
