The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow Physician’s orders.” The surveyors reviewed a resident’s Electronic Medical Record administration report that revealed that the resident was receiving medical treatment and was picked up for transportation every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 5:30 AM.
A review of the resident’s electronic Medication Administration Record Chart Code Documentation indicated that the resident was AW (Away from the center).” The Registered Nurse (RN) confirmed that the resident “did not receive their Humalog sliding-scale [insulin treatment] on the morning of September 11, 2018, September 13, 2018, September 15, 2018, September 18, 2018, and September 20, 2018” because the resident was at the medical treatment center receiving treatment.
The facility Director of Nursing confirmed that the resident “did not have their blood sugar check and did not receive the Humalog sliding-scale” on numerous dates between September 11, 2018, and September 20, 2018.” The Director also confirmed that the resident received other medications approximately 3.5 hours late because they were at the medical treatment center.
The nursing home “failed to ensure adequate relief of pain for [one resident].” The surveyors observed the resident while grimacing in pain and “sitting at the end of the Phillips’ Hallway” with their walker. The surveyors interviewed the resident who revealed they “had physical therapy for the lower back area and had to stop because of the pain.”
The resident indicated that “they did not receive extra pain medication [before] going to physical therapy. The pain medication does help when given.”
The resident’s daughter revealed that “she could not understand why [the resident] always had to be asked for pain medication. Her opinion was to stay ahead of the pain and not play catch up.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Nurse’s Notes that revealed “no notes written that the resident’s pain management was discussed with the resident’s Physician at all.” The resident had been prescribed taking pain medication ‘as needed.’
The resident indicated that the ‘as needed’ medications for pain “were being effective [and] at times, the staff continued to give [the drugs] and not involve the doctor.” The Director of Nursing stated that they will “have the Physician reassess the medications.”
