- Failure to Make Sure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date July 17, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow professional standards of practice for administration, disposal, and documenting of narcotic medication for [two residents].”
A review of the resident’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) and Narcotic Counts Book revealed numerous discrepancies where narcotics had been removed from the narcotic counts but had not been documented in the Medication Administration Record.
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated October 19, 2016, the facility “failed to follow Physician’s orders, failed to properly dispose of medications, and failed to follow professional standards of practice for the administration of pain medications.” The investigation involved four residents.
A review of a resident’s Medication Administration Record indicated that the resident had received a pain medication after revealing a “pain rating of zero” on October 6, 2016, with the pain rating of nine on October 13, 2016, and “on October 14, 2016, with a pain rating of three.”
On additional dates, the resident had received pain medication when indicating a pain rating of six, seven, and six, respectively. However, the Physician ordered pain parameters for administering pain medication for severe pain indicated that the resident should have received the medication with “a pain rating of 8-10” only.
The Unit Manager “confirmed the above findings and revealed that the pain rating is a pain level [before the] administration.”
The surveyors also reviewed the Medication Administration Record and Infusion Therapy Medication Administration Record for one resident “that revealed there was no documentation that the PICC line was flushed with 10 mL of normal saline on ten of sixty-three shifts” as required by professional standards of quality.
