- Failure to Give Every Resident Sufficient Fluids to Keep Them Healthy and Prevent Dehydration – citation date July 21, 2017
- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation date May 12, 2016
According to state investigators, “it was determined that three residents reviewed for hydration, the facility did not ensure fluid intake was monitored to ensure proper hydration and health. Specifically, the facility staff did not monitor a daily prescribed fluid restriction and a fluid deficit.”
One incident involved a cognitively intact resident who was on a fluid restriction that ranges from 480 mL to 2140 mL. The investigators interviewed the resident who stated that “her fluid intake is limited, but she was unsure of the amount. The resident said she thinks she can have at least four glasses of fluids. She said she tries to have a drink at nighttime, so she is not thirsty.”
The surveyors observed the resident eating lunch in the main dining room. At that time, the resident had already consumed 120 mL of the 480 mL on the table. The resident said that “she had not asked anyone to consider [the amount of fluid she was consuming], as she did not think she could.”
The survey team interviewed the Registered Nurse (RN) Manager, who said that “she does not know who documents the twenty-four-hour fluid intake/tally.” The Manager also said that “she did not know if there was a way to record fluid intake in the Electronic Medical Record.”
The facility “did not ensure that each residents’ drug regimen is free from unnecessary medications.” Specifically, one resident’s antipsychotic medication “was increased with no documented indication for the increase.” The incident involved a moderately cognitively impaired resident who “had not exhibited any behaviors.”
Documentation at the facility indicated that the pharmacist had recommended a decrease in the medication because “the resident had adjusted well” to the medication. Other documentation shows that the Nurse Practitioner “checked off that she is in agreement.”
A note from the Nurse Practitioner and Physician revealed that “the resident’s mood and affect are appropriate and pleasant, with no hallucinations or delusions or mentions any behaviors.” The resident’s Care Plan failed to identify goals or interventions related to any gradual dose reduction.
