- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date September 20, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure that residents were free from non-consensual sexual contact.” The incident requires a review of a resident’s Quarterly MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment that indicated that the resident “always understood others and was always understood by others and was able to walk on the unit independently.”
The resident’s Care Plan regarding Behaviors revealed that “he needed a private room and staff were to maintain his safety when he used objects for sexual stimulation.” A Nursing Note revealed that “the resident had unusual sexual behavior toward himself and a Nursing Note “revealed that [the resident] was observed standing over his bed with his pants down at his knees and there was a female resident in his bed at the time, and she was removed from the room.”
The surveyors stated that “there was no documented evidence that following the incident involving another resident [that the sexually aggressive resident’s] Care Plan was updated/revised to include interventions to prevent him from having non-consensual sexual contact with other residents.”
The Director of Nursing stated during an interview that a psychologist saw the resident. However, there is no documented evidence that the psychologist made any recommendations regarding treatment, services, or interventions for the resident sexual behaviors. She confirmed there were no interventions in place to prevent [the resident] from having non-consensual sexual contact with other residents.”
In a separate summary statement dated May 23, 2018, the facility “failed to ensure residents were free from neglect.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff resulted “in a fall with a fractured bone.” The documentation shows that while a Nurse Aide was performing range of motion exercises, the resident’s “right leg got caught up on the left leg. The resident complained of mild knee pain with extension of the right leg.”
The resident’s “right knee was swollen, and she complained of increased pain and yelled out in pain when moved. The nursing staff notified the Physician, who ordered an x-ray.”
The results of the x-ray indicated that the resident had a comminuted fracture (a break or splinter of the bone into two or more fragments usually caused by a high-impact trauma such as a fall or accident). The nursing staff transferred the resident to the hospital “for evaluation and treatment.”
During an interview with the resident, it was confirmed that “a man came into my room and tried to get me into bed himself. He went to pick me up on her my arms, and when he stood up, I fell down and ended up sitting on my leg.” The Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident was not transferred using a mechanical lift but that a Nurse Aide attempted to transfer the resident without assistance.
