The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to document follow-up assessments of the resident’s pain relief after the administration of pain medication.”
The survey team interviewed the resident on April 23, 2019, at approximately 9:45 AM. The resident “revealed that they have pain in their back in their side.” The resident “was unable to answer the question of whether or not they got relief from pain medications administered to them.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Record dated two days later after the interview that revealed that the resident “had no documented pain rating after the administration” of the pain medication on numerous occasions between April 2, 2019, and April 21, 2019.
The facility “failed to document behavior monitoring for a resident who received an antipsychotic medication.” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Records on numerous dates indicating that the resident exhibited behavioral symptoms and was taking the medication and that the drugs required monitoring.
The surveyors interviewed the Unit Manager, who revealed that “residents who take antipsychotic medications must have their behaviors documented using a behavior flow record.” The Unit Manager “also confirmed that there was no behavior flow record for [the resident] and that there should have been one.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure that the MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessments accurately reflect the skin integrity status of [one resident].” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Skin Integrity Report dated January 12, 2018.
The report indicated that the resident “had a Stage II pressure ulcer on their coccyx, which was present on their Admission Dates.” The document also revealed that the resident “had a Stage II pressure ulcer on the right posterior lower extremity, which was also present on admission.”
A review of the Current Wound Care Center Progress Note indicated the resident “now had a stage IV [life-threatening] pressure ulcer on the right posterior leg and a Stage III pressure sore on their sacrum.”
