- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date February 15, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure that the facility manages resident trust funds that were not misappropriated.” The investigation included one resident “without cognitive impairment” who identified that “he/she could only get a few dollars at the time from the resident trust fund.”
The survey team reviewed the undated Trust Fund Transaction list of transactions that identified that “the resident had $180 missing from his/her account.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated February 5, 2019, the facility “failed to ensure that residents were free from mistreatment and verbal or physical abuse.” This investigation involved a resident who “had no memory problems, was totally dependent on one-person for positioning while in bed and with dressing and had behavioral symptoms of resistance.”
A Nurse’s Note dated June 2, 2018, identified that there was “an allegation of rough handling reported to the Nurse Supervisor, which occurred when a Nurse Aide was attempting to reposition [a resident] in bed. The note indicated the resident reported the Nurse Aide dragged [the resident] while turning and repositioning the resident, causing pain. When [a resident] informed the Nurse Aide that her actions caused pain, the Nurse Aide stated, ‘I did not hurt you,’ said something in her native tongue, smirked, and walked away from [the resident].”
A Reportable Event Form that was documented nineteen minutes later identified the same resident had “reported the Nurse Aide was rough during care. The report indicated [that the resident] had requested to be adjusted in bed, and while attempting to reposition [the resident, the Nurse Aide yanked the resident] very hard, causing harm to the resident and then laughed at the resident.”
A second Nurse Aide “was in the room at the time of the incident and heard [the resident] scream out and say, ‘Stop, you are hurting me, you are so rough to me, and I did not do anything wrong.’”
