- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date August 2, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to prevent staff-to-resident abuse for [one resident] reviewed for abuse.” Specifically, the resident “sustained bruising and pain when a staff member transferred her from her wheelchair to her bed by grabbing her wrists.”
The resident “was physically abused when a nursing assistant physically placed her into the bed against her wishes, which resulted in the resident experiencing bruises to her left upper arm, top of the left hand, right elbow, and right upper arm and pain.”
A review of the resident’s Care Plan dated December 24, 2017, indicated that the resident “was at risk for injury or complications related to the use of anticoagulation therapy.” Interventions included observing the resident for “complaints of pain of the bone, abdomen, or joint. Observe for active bleeding, i.e., hematuria, bruising, etc.”
Even though the incident was first documented on July 12, 2018, at 10:40 AM, the 24-hour Facility Reported Incident Report was documented over two hours later 12:52 PM. The incident report indicated that the resident told the Nursing Assistant “when she approached her that she did not want to go to bed, but the Aide proceeded to grab her arm to put her to bed. The resident told the Aide, ‘Stop, you’re hurting me, and I am going to have a big bruise tomorrow.’”
The resident stated that the Aide replied, “I am not hurting you and proceeded to place her in bed, turning her fast and hard.” The resident “was tearful about the incident but easily comforted.” The nursing home Administrator terminated the Nursing Aides employment on July 18, 2018, after substantiating the allegation.
