Lake Owasso Residence Shoreview Cited with Substantiated Neglect by MDH after Failure to Supervise Clients Leads to Forced Sexual Activity

Lake Owasso Residence Shoreview Neglect Failure to Supervise Clients

In a report dated February 3, 2017, the Minnesota Department of Health, it was alleged that Lake Owasso Residence Shoreview staff failed to provide adequate supervision and two client engaged in sexual activity with each other.

Lake Owasso Residence Shoreview Substantiated Neglect by Staff

According to the MDH report of substantiated neglect: based on a preponderance of the evidence, neglect occurred when the facility failed to provide adequate supervision of two clients resulting in Client #1 forcing sexual activity.

Client #1 was diagnosed with mild intellectual disability.  Client #2 was diagnosed with moderate intellectual disability.

The two clients lived in adjacent areas on the same hallway.  Client #1 resided at the facility for five days when staff notified the supervisor that there were concerns about the interactions between the two clients that put Client #2 at risk.  Client #1 would follow Client #2 around and site very close to Client #2.  The supervisor told the staff member to keep eye contact on Client #1 and maintain separation between the two clients.  The information was not shared with all staff members.  No plan was implemented to provide additional supervision or other strategies to maintain the safety of all clients.

Two days later, Client #2 told staff that Client #1 knocked on Client #2′ door and asked for sex.  Staff immediately reported this information to a supervisor.  No additional supervision was implemented.  Three days later, Client #1 was not in the common area and a staff person called out Client #1’s name.  Client #1 responded from Client #2’s bedroom.  Client #1 came out of the bedroom adjusting her/his pants.  The same day, Client #2 told staff the two clients had intercourse.  The supervisor was notified, but no additional supervision or interventions were implemented.  The following day, Client #2 told another staff member that Client #1 raped Client #2.  The supervisor notified the director who initiated an investigation Client #2 was sent to the hospital for an evaluation and Client #1 was sent to the hospital because he was a danger to other clients.

Client #1 was interviewed and said Client #1 and Client #2 had sexual intercourse.

Client #2 was interviewed and said on three occasions, including the incident when Client #1 was in Client #2’s room, Client #1 had forced Client #2 to have sexual intercourse.  Client #2 said s/he was to scared to tell anyone.

Client #2’s hospital record was reviewed and the sexual assault exam indicated there was evidence of vaginal penetration and the client had genital tear/laceration.  During an interview, the sexual assault nurse examiner stated that Client #2’s injury was consistent with penetration.

Prevent Minnesota Nursing Home Sexual Assault

Pursuant to federal and state regulations nursing homes have an obligation to keep their residents safe.  They are considered vulnerable adults by legal definition since they are staying in a nursing home facility.

Pursuant to 42 CFR 483.12, the resident has the right to be free from abuse, neglect, misappropriation of resident property, and exploitation as defined in this subpart. This includes but is not limited to freedom from corporal punishment, involuntary seclusion and any physical or chemical restraint not required to treat the resident’s medical symptoms.

Nursing Home Sexual Assault by Other Residents

Due to resident rights, a resident in a assisted living facility have a legal right to have a relationship even a physical one with other residents if there is consent.  Consent is the issue, at what point does one or both of the parties lose their legal right to consent to sex.   If there is event without consent there may be civil liabilities for the facility and provider as well as potential criminal actions ranging from restraining orders to criminal charges.

Nursing Home Sexual Assault by Staff Members

There are also of course situations where staff members take advantage of the fact that resident’s may be confusion or have other cognitive issues that make them very vulnerable to sexual assault.  Staff members should have background checks to limit the ability of persons with a known history to have contact with the residents.  However, the backgrounds are not always performed in a timely manner, or there are new criminal issues that show up once the staff member is hired, or the report is missing key information from other states or countries.  Then there are the staff that had never been caught abusing before but lacked the supervision of the staff and their actions which fostered an environment for those with a propensity to attempt sexual abuse.

Residents need to be properly assessed, and then the staff needs to be well trained then supervised by protective management to assure the safety of all the residents.  Minnesota is a one person consent video state which means that you can place a hidden camera in the room of a resident.   The room in an assisted living facility is a private space just like an apartment in any other building and the resident can have a hidden camera if the resident and/or their legal representative consents to the recording.

Nursing Home Sexual Assault Reporting

Pursuant to Minn. Statute 144.7065, Subd. 7, potential criminal events, events reportable under this subdivision are:

(1) any instance of care ordered by or provided by someone impersonating a physician, nurse, pharmacist, or other licensed health care provider;
(2) abduction of a patient of any age;
(3) sexual assault on a patient within or on the grounds of a facility; and
(4) death or serious injury of a patient or staff member resulting from a physical assault that occurs within or on the grounds of a facility.
