- Failure to Provide a Safe, Appropriate Pain Management Plan of Care for a Resident Who Requires Those Services – citation #F697 date January 11, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing facility “failed to provide an effective pain management program [for a resident] that included ongoing assessments and interventions over a five-month period when receiving treatment for [the removal of toxins from the blood] and wound care.” The failure resulted in the resident experiencing “unrelieved moderate to severe pain, causing psychological distress and [interference] with his activities of daily living.”
The state investigators reviewed the resident’s clinical records that indicated “pain medication therapy goals were for the resident to be free from any discomfort or adverse (negative response) side effects from the pain medication. The interventions were to [ensure that the nursing staff administered] medication as ordered, ask the Physician to review medication, review [records] for pain efficiency, assess whether pain intensity is acceptable to the resident and the therapeutic regimen was followed, and if the pain control was not adequate, changes were required.”
However, a review of the resident’s Physician’s Assistant Progress Note indicated that the resident experiences phantom pain, a “perception of pain from a missing limb in the leg that was very bothersome at night.” There were no new Physician orders for treatment for the pain.Failure to Remedy Past Noncompliance – citation #F698 date January 11, 2019
The nursing home “failed to communicate or collaborate with [the dialysis treatment clinic] when the communication record did not contain documentation of required monitoring. This failure had the potential to result in an unidentified complication or worsening of the condition that could be identified and acted upon timely.”
A review of the resident’s communication records between October 2018 and January 2019 indicated issues and concerns involving the resident’s vital signs, blood pressure, pain, and the appearance of the medical treatment site before and after the treatment. The surveyors documented that there were inconsistent blood assessments and no pain assessments in the medical records, and there “was no coordination of care documented related to an ulcer wound [on the resident’s] buttocks.”
