- 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 12, 2019
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date July 8, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home failed to prevent the resident “from having an altercation with [another resident]. This failure had the potential to cause psychological distress, anxiety, and fear, resulting in adverse clinical outcomes.” The Admissions Director verified that there was an altercation between two residents and stated that the residents “are separated physically. They have no further encounters between them.”
The investigation indicated that the altercation occurred in the Large Dining Room that was initiated by one resident grabbing the other resident’s arm. The aggressive resident mistakenly thought that the other resident “had a towel belonging to [them].” The record reflects that the staff intervened and separated both residents.
The nursing home “failed to ensure the safety of its residents when there was water from the Wing 1 Shower Room on the floor, in front of the shower room, down the hall, and around the corner.”
Additionally, the “Wing 2 Medication Room door was opened and unattended by licensed staff; and a Wing 2 Medication Cart was unlocked and unattended while an unsupervised, confused resident was present.” The surveyor determined that “these failures had the potential for residents being injured, as a result of the wet floor. Confused residents were at risk of obtaining medications from the Medication Room or Medication Cart, resulting in unexpected side effects to medications.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that “she was aware of the open Medication Room and unlocked medication cart and acknowledged that they should not have been left unattended.”
