Three male residents were subjected to multiple observed instances of having their nipples rubbed and twisted by two CNAs. The CNAs would stimulate the residents' nipples to "get them to do what I want them to do." Despite the apparent long history of this conduct, the sexual abuse was not reported until the facility activities director attended a mandatory sexual harassment meeting on 6/3/2014. The facility administrator said the abuse was not inappropriate because "I felt it calms the residents down . . . the incident had not gone beyond the playfulness by the two CNAs." The facility was cited for failing to prevent sexual abuse of its residents.
