- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others – citation #F223 date March 17, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure that one resident “was free from staff abuse and failed to ensure [another resident] was free from abuse by [a third resident].”
The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident, who “alleged rough treatment from a Certified Nursing Assistant.” After completion of the facility investigation, “the allegation of physical abuse was substantiated and [the CNA] was terminated and reported to the Arizona Board of Nursing.”
A separate CNA stated they were “a witness to the incident between [the staff member and the resident]. She stated that she observed [the resident] in the wheelchair on the night of the incident, and [the CNA] plopped the resident onto the bed and threw her legs from the wheelchair to the bed.”
The CNA also stated that “when the resident asked [the aggressive CNA] what she was doing, [the aggressive CNA] told the resident she helped her and asked the resident, ‘what more do you want.’”
The investigators interviewed the resident who stated that the CNA “was a mean girl. She further stated [the CNA] was very mean and rough with her at that time and that [the aggressive CNA] threw her on the bed [and] continued throwing her on the bed even though she told [the CNA] it was hurting her left shoulder and that she [the CNA] needed to slow down.” The resident stated that that CNA “was fired because she had been mean to her.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that the CNA was terminated for this reason.
A separate incident involving other residents was also investigated. This resident “was able to recall the incident” and stated she was hit by another resident. The” assaulted resident stated that “she was sitting in her wheelchair in the hallway by her room when [the aggressive resident] wheeled himself toward her and placed his hand on her knee, then he hit her.”
The assaulted resident stated that the aggressive resident “hit her on the knee that had been replaced, and it hurt when he hit her.” The injured resident stated that “she had no previous incidents with [the aggressive resident] and thought that another resident told [the aggressive resident] to hit her for an unknown reason.”
