- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date March 9, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure a resident “was provided a safe and hazard-free room environment as evidenced by a medication cup containing [one resident’s medications found in another resident’s room].” A review of the facility’s policy titled: Incidents and Accidents states that “the guest environment remained as free of accident hazards as is possible [and] an incident is an occurrence that may not be consistent with the routine operation of the facility or the routine care of a particular guest.”
The investigators observed a medication cup “containing three pills on the dresser in [one resident’s room]. The surveyor [asked that resident if they had] taken his/her morning medications.” The resident replied that they had taken their morning medications.
Ten minutes later, the investigator and Unit Manager/Registered Nurse (RN) entered the resident’s room and “observed a medication cup containing three pills on the dresser.” The RN asked the resident if “the nurse had given him/her their medications that morning.” That resident indicated that they had taken their medications already.
The Unit Manager stated during an interview that medication should not be left in a cup in the resident’s room because there was potential harm, saying, “you do not know if they take the medication; they may take the medications, or they may drop the medications.”
The Unit Manager further explained that nurses “cannot ensure the residents are taking them like they are supposed to if we do not see them take them.” Another Registered Nurse was asked, “why did she leave [the resident’s] medications when she went into [another resident’s] room?” That RN said that she had prepared one resident’s medications and “heard a call light go off and it was [the other resident’s] call light.”
The nurse said that “she thought it was going to be a quick in and out [and further explained that the other resident] required assistance with getting to the bathroom and by the time she [was finished assisting the other resident] she forgot the medication was sitting on the dresser.” This Registered Nurse said that the resident “could take the wrong medication, or they could choke on them.”
