The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to report to the State agency the failure of the facility to ensure that the [the staff] provide services necessary to avoid potential physical harm.” Specifically, the nursing home failed to “report a non-functioning fire system.”
On December 31, 2017, the facility “was placed on a fire watch by the local Fire Marshal, due to the fire system needing repairs. The state agency was not notified that the fire system was needing repair and was not functioning.”
Findings include that on December 4, 2018, at approximately 1:00 PM, “a notice was located on the front door. The notice was from the local county Department of Fire and Rescue/Office of the Fire Marshal. The notice documented ‘the structure has been placed on FIRE WATCH by order of the Fire Marshal.” The document indicated that the “Fire Alarm System [was] Out of Service.”
The nursing home “failed to administer pain medications per Physician’s orders.” The investigation involved a resident with brain damage and “a history of a gunshot to the head, diabetes, depression, high blood pressure, legally blind, chronic pain, stroke, and other disorders that causes both a loss of contact with reality and mood problems (depression or mania).”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) that documented only one dose of their medication on September 27, 2018. “There was no time documented, no pain scale documented, or effectiveness documented.”
The state investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing, who stated “the nurse should assess the pain, have the resident described the pain, do the pain scale. They should try non-pharmacological interventions. If they are ineffective, then go to the Medication Administration Record and offer pain medication according to the Physician order.” Additionally, “the nurse should follow the Physician’s orders.
