- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation #F757 date January 4, 2019
- Failure to Provide Safe and Appropriate Respiratory Care for a Resident When Needed – citation #F695 date November 1, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that [one resident] reviewed for respiratory care was free from medication use in excessive doses.” The state surveyors interviewed the resident in her room just after noon on January 4, 2019.
At that time, “she stated that she was recently admitted to the facility [for] post-operative recovery. She received nebulizer treatments (a device designed to deliver inhaled medication in a mist form) while in the facility and was independent with the use of the nebulizer.”
The surveyors observed the nebulizer device “sitting on top of the bedside table.” The survey team reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Record documented on January 1, 2019, at 5:00 PM.” All the medications have been signed off on that date and subsequent dates.
However, on January 3, 2019, the nursing staff had signed “as having administered” five doses, including one at 9:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 5:00 PM, and 6:00 PM. There were three doses not given that day at 12:00 AM, 6:00 AM, and 12:00 PM “due to [the resident] being on leave from the facility or held by [the nurse].”
On other occasions, it was revealed that the resident was receiving “too much” medication. The Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner was asked by the Unit Manager “if the order could be discontinued.” The Nurse Practitioner replied “Yes.”
The Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner confirmed that the resident had received the medication up to eight times a day “as opposed to four times a day, as ordered, as a result of an entry error.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident “received the medication up to eight times daily, not per the Physician’s orders.”
The facility “failed to provide appropriate care and services for [two residents] with tracheostomies.” The state investigators interviewed a resident whose words were barely audible. The surveyors say that “when [the resident] was talking, he began to cough, and it sounded wet.” It was determined that the resident needed to be suctioned.
However, the Registered Nurse (RN) who entered the resident’s room with a sterile suctioning catheter had failed to follow established procedures and protocols to eliminate the spread of infection.
