- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date November 22, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the resident was free from abuse while personal care was provided.” A Nurse’s Note indicated that “at approximately 5:30 AM, the Charge Nurse was called to the resident’s room.” The resident “reported to the Charge Nurse that a Nurse Aide had treated him/herroughly and had abused him/her, while turning the resident during incontinent care.”
The incident “was reported to the Administrator and Director of Nursing, and an investigation was initiated. The Reportable Event Form dated April 20, 2017, at 6:00 AM, identified [that the resident] had alleged abuse by a Nurse Aide during incontinent care. The Social Services Note [identified that] the resident had made an allegation of abuse.”
However, the note “identified the resident did not have a bowel movement in four days and was feeling the urge to go to the bathroom.” The resident “reported he/she put on a call light and waited at least fifteen minutes for a Nurse Aide [to come into the room to] help, and by that time the resident had soiled the bed and needed assistance with incontinent care.”
According to the resident, the Nurse Aide while turning the resident, “pushed on the resident’s right knee, and the resident yelled out in pain. Although [the resident] had asked the Nurse Aide to stop several times, the Nurse Aide continued until incontinent care was completed.”
The resident stated that the Nurse Aide “was rough in maneuvering the resident, [and the] Nurse Aide did not seem to care that she was causing pain and had made comments under her breath that the resident was unable to hear well.”
The Director of Nursing and Administrator confirmed that “the Nurse Aide had continued to roughly move the resident around, causing pain in the right knee. The Nurse Aide should have called for assistance.”
