FACILITY FAILED TO PROTECT EACH RESIDENT FROM ALL ABUSE, PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT, AND BEING SEPARATED FROM OTHERS
LEVEL OF HARM –IMMEDIATE JEOPARDY
**NOTE- TERMS IN BRACKETS HAVE BEEN EDITED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY**
Based on medical record review, staff and resident interviews the facility failed to protect a resident ‘ s right to be free from physical abuse for 1 of 1 Residents (#1).
Immediate jeopardy began on 12/27/15 when Resident # 1 was slapped by two nursing assistants. Immediate jeopardy was removed on 1/7/16 when an acceptable credible allegation was provided. The facility remains out at a lower scope and severity of D (isolated with no actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm, that is not immediate jeopardy) to ensure monitoring systems put into place are effective related to resident rights to be free from abuse.
Review of the statement written by Nurse #1 (nurse assigned to the resident’s hall on 12/27/15) revealed the following, CNA #2 reported to me (Nurse #1) that this morning around 9:45-10:15 am another CNA (certified nursing assistant) asked her to help with (Resident #1). NA #2 stated while she was in (Resident #1) room with (NA #1 and NA #3), the two cna’s listed above stood on either side of the resident as she was assisting place his pants on him, one CNA (NA#1) slapped resident in his face, then immediately after (NA#3) slapped him as well. NA #2 also stated both CNA’s were causing resident to become more agitated and combative. I spoke with resident and he said two women were in his room and they hit him, but that he hit them back, then he pointed to NA #2 saying she was there, but she was the one that helped me. Resident did not have any marks at that time.
