- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date December 14, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to investigate and report an allegation of abuse for [one resident]. This failure had the potential to result in ongoing abuse with no resident protection.”
The survey team reviewed the complaint documentation dated December 4, 2018 that indicated the week before the resident had stated they were assaulted or attacked by another resident. The injured resident “sustained a skin tear (cut in the skin) and bruises (skin discoloration) on the lower extremities and called the police, as the institution [the facility] was not doing anything about the incident.”
The Director of Nursing indicated to the surveyors that they had heard about the incident and “thought there was no physical contact that occurred between [both residents].” The Director also said that a Licensed Vocational Nurse “performed body checks on the residents, as instructed, [and] did not report back to the Director of Nursing about the results.”
The assaulted resident stated they had gotten up out of bed and found the other resident “attempting to enter the room.” The assaulted resident stated “I told her [the second resident] not to come into the room and she started kicking me, kicking my legs. These are from the assault (referring to the raised bruises on both lower legs and a small skin tear on the left lower leg).” The resident further indicated that a Certified Nursing Assistant saw the attacking resident “and backed the resident’s wheelchair out from the room.”
The injured resident called law enforcement. “Two officers arrived at the facility while [the Licensed Vocational Nurse] was still inside the resident’s room applying the treatment/dressing on the resident’s lower leg.”
The assaulting resident “had no recollection of the event and stated, ‘why would I do that?’” The resident “denied the event occurred.”
The Director of Nursing could not recall the Licensed Vocational Nurse “reporting physical contact.” The surveyors say that “no investigation and reporting documents were located from the facility record during the record review. The facility was not able to present any investigation and reporting documents upon the request of the surveyor.”
The Director of Nursing indicated that “no investigation was done, and the Abuse Coordinator was not notified.” The Director said “it is my fault. I made a mistake.” The facility Administrator said, “I am the Abuse Coordinator and I was not aware of the incident.”
