- Failure to Provide a Safe, Appropriate Pain Management Plan of Care for a Resident Who Requires Those Services – citation #F697 date November 15, 2018
The state investigators determined “the facility failed to ensure pain management was provided to residents who require such services consistent with professional standards of practice, the comprehensive person-centered Care Plan and the resident’s goals and preferences.” The investigation involved one resident “reviewed for pain management.”
It was determined that “the facility failed to administer a pain patch as ordered by the Physician before wound care was done for [the resident who] cried and yelled from pain while being treated for [wounds].” It was also noted that the resident’s “pain level assessment was inaccurately documented.”
These failures affected one resident “and placed her at risk of experiencing unnecessary pain and at risk for suffering unnecessary pain in the future.” A review of the resident’s Initial Baseline Care Plan dated November 9, 2018, revealed that the resident “had a Care Plan for pain related to acute/chronic pain.”
The goal in the Care Plan “was to not have an interruption of normal activities due to pain through the review date. Interventions included to have a pain assessment every shift and reposition for comfort.” The resident’s Admitting History and Physical documentation shows that the resident “was admitted with a Stage II pressure sore” on November 9, 2018.
However, documentation from November 14, 2018, indicated that the “pressure sore wound dressing” was now “an unstageable opened area of approximately 2.0 cm in diameter.” When the Licensed Vocational Nurse cleaned the center of the resident’s wound, the resident “cried out in pain.”
The resident indicated that “she had received Tylenol, but it was not helping with the pain.” The survey team interviewed the facility Director of Nursing who was informed that the resident “had expressed pain during wound care and that the [medication patch] on the resident had not been applied that morning as ordered but was signed out.”
One member of the staff stated that they had placed the medication patch on the resident in the morning but had signed the wrong date on the patch. However, when the surveyors asked the resident’s private sitter, who had been in the room, if she had witnessed the patch being placed on the resident she stated “she did not remember [that nurse] placing a patch on her back, but she did remember the surveyor being in the room earlier to observe wound care.
