- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date December 15, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to implement policies and procedures to protect [one resident] from potential abuse. The hospital transfer information recorded that the resident alleged rape by a male perpetrator; the Physician identified a history of possible sexual abuse by the father.”
On December 5, 2016, “the Physician assessed the resident as incapacitated and the father was recorded as the responsible party. The Clinical Admission Director had noted that on December 1, 2016, she had been informed that the resident became agitated at the speaking with the father on the telephone.”
The “father was noted as the only emergency contact, and the facility notified him of the resident’s location on December 5, 2016.” Two days later at 6:15 PM, the “Administrator was notified of an Immediate Jeopardy related to the facility’s failure to identify and act upon [the resident’s] allegation of a history of sexual abuse, an allegation of rape from an unknown male perpetrator, and fear of her father.”
It was noted that the facility failed to “protect the resident from potential abuse, sexual or psychosocial, or another resident who might have been at risk.” During an interview with the facility Administrator, it was revealed that “he had no awareness [that the resident] was fearful of her father or had any other concerns and called the Social Worker to the office.”
The Social Worker stated that the Unit Manager had notified her of an “issue of alleged sexual abuse by the father, about two hours earlier. She indicated the Physician had noted a possible history of sexual abuse by the father [and stated that] she had not yet completed a resident assessment and that she had not discussed [and what was going on] with the Administrator.”
The “facility provided a plan of correction to the State Agency, which was reviewed and accepted.” The “plan of correction was reviewed for implementation and immediacy abated.”
