- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 14, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to protect [two residents] from sexual abuse from [a third resident].” The state investigators determined an Immediate Jeopardy began on December 27, 2018, when the resident “verbally told direct care staff that he had stuck his finger up a cognitively impaired resident’s vagina.”
The staff “failed to put into action an effective plan to address [and] monitor his behaviors, resulting in [the sexually aggressive resident] being observed attempting to have sexual intercourse with [the third resident] on July 4, 2019.”
The resident’s medical records indicate the resident was taking antidepressant medication and antipsychotic drugs to help with dementia. The sexually aggressive resident needed “standby assistance during ambulating in the room with a rolling walker.” The resident “was able to manage doors [and] maneuver rolling walkers with staff by assistance.”
The resident’s Care Plan, dated December 20, 2018, states that the resident “made inappropriate comments of a sexual nature to female staff.” A look at the resident’s Care Plan indicates that “although the resident displays behavior symptoms that may impact himself and others, he is not an immediate threat to himself or others at this time.”
An Occurrence Report revealed that the sexually inappropriate resident was in another resident’s room “with socially inappropriate behavior involving a resident-to-resident altercation.” The document shows that the resident “was noted lying on top of [another resident] with his penis out.” The other resident’s “brief was opened on the right side. The residents were separated and a body audit of [the victim] revealed no redness or blood noted in the vaginal area.”
