According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure an antianxiety medication [was] given on an as-needed basis and was not used for more than fourteen days without a Physician’s documented rationale and indication for the ‘as needed’ order beyond fourteen days of use.”
Documentation shows the resident received a Physician’s order to receive antianxiety medication every eight hours ‘as needed’ to treat anxiety. The resident’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) shows that the resident received several doses of the as-needed antianxiety drugs “within the fourteen days allowed.”
However, the resident received two additional doses outside of the fourteen-day parameter “nineteen days after the order should have been ended or renewed by the Physician.” The Assistant Director of Nursing verified that the medication should have only be given within the fourteen-day parameter but that they were “waiting for the antidepressant medication kicked in.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure infection control practices to track and trend infections were implemented for three months of infection control reviewed.” The surveyors found the Infection Control Logs “did not document any trends” when tracking “nine residents with upper respiratory infections.”
Four of the nine residents lived on the 100 Hall, one resident lived on the 200 Hall, and four lived on the 300 Hall. The “infection control log documented three urinary tract infections. Two of the infections were Escherichia coli (E coli). There were no in-services documented related to the tracking and trending of the infections.
The survey team interviewed the Director of Nursing who verified that they had not done anything when “asked what she had done when she identified several urinary tract infections or upper respiratory infections.” The Director also verified that she had not provided in-service in conjunction with the infection control tracking and trending.
The facility “failed to notify the physician of blood pressures outside the Physician had been ordered parameters.” This failure occurred over numerous months in 2016 when blood pressure results were outside the Physician-ordered parameters from April 2016 through July 2016. In one incident, the clinical record documented a blood pressure was 179/135, which was significantly high, and another incident was documented at 162/96 as the lowest high blood pressure during that time frame.
The survey team reviewed the resident’s records where there was “no documentation of the Physician being notified of the above findings located in the resident’s clinical record.”
