Rainbow Beach Nursing Center Fails to Protect Female Resident

RAINBOW BEACH NURSING CENTER
7325 S. Exchange Ave
FINED- September 29, 2004
Rainbow Beach Nursing Center was fined $10,000 for
failing to adequately supervise a resident found
involved in inappropriate sexual behavior in a female
resident’s room. When the woman awoke, she became
agitated and frightened and had to be given medication
to calm down.
The male resident had a history of wandering in to
female residents’ rooms and two weeks prior to the
incident the female resident had complained about him
coming into her room. Despite the resident’s history,
his care plan did not address the behavior and there
was no documentation the resident was being adequately
supervised.
