- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date October 22, 2018
The state investigators determined “that the facility failed to ensure that a resident is free from abuse.” A review of the resident’s medical records indicated that the resident “was verbally abused by [a Nursing Assistant]. This incident was witnessed by [a second] Nursing Assistant.”
The reporting Nursing Assistant revealed that on July 30, 2018, the allegedly abusive Nursing Assistant stated to the resident “if you hit me, I will get you back, and she will kick your a**.” Additionally, the allegedly abusive Nursing Assistant “was observed physically throwing air punches toward [the resident] in his/her face.”
A second incident documented on December 4, 2017, revealed that another resident “was verbally abused by a Registered Nurse (RN).” This incident was witnessed by Nursing Assistants and a second Registered Nurse.
Staff members recorded written statements after witnessing the incident. The document shows that the Registered Nurse said to the resident, “let’s go, don’t do this again. Hurry up and move, this wheelchair [belongs to] the psychiatric unit.”
A staff member reported that the RN had screamed at the resident “’get back upstairs, you do not need candy or chocolate if you’re having diarrhea,’ and then was about to take the candy bar away from the resident until another staff verbally intervened.”
The Registered Nurse “was observed physically pushing and pulling on the back of the resident scooter.” A staff member reported that the resident “was trying to come out of the elevator as [the RN] continued to push the wheelchair yelling at [the resident] while taking him/her down the hallway.” The Registered Nurse was “yelling that the resident did not have the right to go downstairs or leave the floor.”
