PROTECT EACH RESIDENT FROM ALL ABUSE, PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT, AND BEING SEPARATED FROM OTHERS –Level of harm – Immediate jeopardy

On 05/15/13 at 4:30 p.m., an immediate jeopardy (IJ) situation was identified related to the failure of the facility to protect all residents after a resident made an allegation of a certified nurse aide (CNA #1) being abusive. The facility failed to have an effective plan in place to supervise and monitor the CNA to ensure all the residents were safe from abuse.

Continuing: On 05/17/13 at 9:35 a.m., the OSDH was called and verified the need to reinstitute the IJ due to the facility’s failure to protect all residents and follow their abuse policy as documented on their plan of removal, received on 05/15/13 at 5:30 p.m.

Continuing: Based on observations, record review and interviews, it was determined the facility failed to protect all residents after one (#3) of twelve sampled residents made an allegation of a CNA (#1) being abusive. The facility failed to have an effective plan in place to supervise and monitor the CNA to ensure all the residents were safe from abuse.

Continuing: An Incident Report Form reported to the OSDH by the administrator, dated 05/01/13, documented, Resident alleged that a CNA fed him roughly. He stated that she ‘fed me like a dog.

Continuing: He stated (name withheld) made him feel like a dog when she was ‘shoving’ food in his mouth. He stated she was mad when she came in and wanted to watch television more than help me eat.

Continuing: The surveyor asked the administrator why the incident report sent to the OSDH documented CNA #1 was terminated. She stated she had talked to corporate and they had encouraged her not to terminate the CNA.
