- Failure to Provide a Safe, Appropriate Pain Management Plan of Care for a Resident Who Requires Those Services – citation #F697 date January 2, 2019
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to identify and follow up on a cause of [the resident’s] back pain when the therapy department had reported to nursing that [the resident] had back pain on several occasions and had reported to the interdisciplinary team that she had back pain, requesting an x-ray and follow up for the pain.”
The deficient practice by the nursing staff resulted in the resident “not receiving the necessary pain medication and treatment while in the facility.” This failure “resulted in the resident being discharged from the facility with no follow-up regarding causation or a treatment plan for the back pain.”
The Occupational Therapy Evaluation and Plan of Treatment Note indicated that the resident had “no pain on July 12, 2018.” Seven days later, an occupational therapy referral indicated that the resident “had a new onset of a decrease in strength, decrease in functional mobility, and decrease in transfers, which could be side effects of the newly administered narcotics she is now taking.”
By July 24, 2018, the notation says that the patient “continues to make progress at a slower pace due to her back pain and weakness – she is diligent at tasks and attempting to challenge herself. Hampering factors being a pain in her back and weakness, nurses notified of the patient’s pain issues.”
On July 30, 2018, the resident’s Discharged Information Form indicated that twelve days earlier, the resident “had back pain due to physical therapy, indicating the back pain was not resolved!” A Family Member of the resident stated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) had come into the resident’s room and, “jerked her mom’s arm while trying to help her get out of bed. After the incident [that occurred on either the seventeenth or the eighteenth of the month, the resident] started complaining of terrible back pain.”
The resident’s family member stated that “neither she nor her mother reported the incident to the staff [and that before the incident] while the resident was in the local hospital, she had no back pain.”
