  • The facility did not ensure that residents' personal privacy was maintained. Specifically, a
    staff member was observed videotaping multiple residents with a personal phone in the day
    room. The recreation leader was interviewed and stated she was videotaping the resident because the daughter always wants to see a video. The recreation leader further
    stated that this was not the first time she has recorded videos and taken photographs to

    has to verbally agree to it. She was not sure whether a signed consent is needed. She

After the resident fell, the CNA did not call for the assistance of a nurse, picked the resident up alone, and placed the resident back onto the shower chair.
