- Failure to Keep Residents’ Personal Medical Records Private and Confidential – citation #583 date April 24, 2018
- Failure to Implement Gradual Dose Reductions (GDR) and Non-Pharmacological Interventions Involving Psychotropic Medications – citation #F758 date April 24, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure residents’ privacy in the rooms for nine residents who attended the Resident Council Meeting.” The meeting was held on April 24, 2018.
During the meeting, “multiple residents voiced concerns regarding two female residents who entered the rooms uninvited. They stated one of the residents would go into the bathroom and not leave, which made it difficult for the residents to use their bathroom.”
It was discussed by a resident who wished to remain anonymous that the uninvited resident “also opened drawers and moved things in the room. The resident in the meeting stated if a Velcro stop sign was put across the door the wandering residents removed the signs, and if the doors were closed, the wandering residents open the doors.” The residents at the meeting stated that “the wanderer appeared confused and did not know where she was.”
The facility “failed to ensure residents were free from unnecessary medications.” The “unnecessary medication was [regarding] a reduction of antipsychotic medication. This [failure] had the potential to affect twenty residents who receive antipsychotic medications.”
The surveyors reviewed one resident’s Care Plan that “documented the resident received an antipsychotic medication. The Care Plan documented the resident wandered to the point of exhaustion and exhibited anger at others.”
The resident “was observed numerous times during the survey seated in her wheelchair in the main dining room. She was confused but answered simple yes/no questions. She was able to propel her wheelchair but remained in the sitting room watching the surrounding activities. She was calm/pleasant.”
The surveyors asked the Assistant Director of Nursing to review reports and Physician’s orders in the resident’s Medication Administration Record (MAR). A Physician’s orders outlining the medication regimen of the resident dated March 19, 2018, shows that the resident’s antipsychotic medication “was to be reduced to 25 mg every twelve hours for ten days, then 25 mg daily for ten days, and then stopped.”
The Assistant Director verified that changes had not been made to update the Physician’s orders and a change in the medication regimen when they were received. The Director also verified that the antipsychotic drug the resident was receiving was an unnecessary medication.
