Report Faults Nursing Home for Abuse

As many as 10 residents at a nursing home may have been victims of nursing home abuse at the hands of an employee who has since been fired. The skilled nursing facility was cited after inspectors surveyed the nursing home according to the department’s report. The facility failed to prevent, identify, investigate, protect and report nursing home abuse for 10 of 26 residents reviewed. The administrator stated that none of the incidents involved serious injury. The allegations included accusations that one employee hit a resident, twisted a resident’s arm and spat on a resident. Also an employee allegedly slapped a resident while giving him a shower and directed the water at the resident’s face despite objections. The facility did not remove the person from the facility during the investigation, which is what is prototype. They also had a duty to report any nursing home abuse to the state.
