That's crazy. If I'm understanding your comment correctly she was only trying to protect the patient and she didn't put it in faucet water, she put it in a toilet bowl.
What do you think of this CNN story of the patient refusing to go to the hospital after she hit her head?
Retirement home shut down after a death and a beating - CNN
Should the administrator been arrested?
It looks like there was a significant history of vios and citations, and if they are not devising successful improvements they needed to be shut down.
The amount of money and TRUST that families put into these facilities is absolutely mind-boggling. They have every right to expect their loved one is SAFE.
As for arresting the administrator, it's hard to say (although I admittedly only skimmed the last few paragraphs). Did she meet the legal criteria for criminal negligence? Did she prevent vulnerable adult reports from being made? Did she have prior knowledge that would lead a reasonable person to anticipate further incidents? The answer to the last point is "yes," as there were safety issues before this attack -- more than any other in the state, according to the article.
I do know that about 20 yrs ago in my LTC CNA days, we had one female resident enter the room of another resident and beat the woman's chest with her fists. It was considered a sentinel event. The assailant was initially transferred to gero psych, and then wasn't allowed to return. Her family had to make other arrangements.
