The state investigative team determined that “the facility failed to implement the facility’s policy regarding reporting an alleged incident of abuse. This [failure] affected one resident reviewed for self-reported incidents.”
A review of the facility investigation dated July 25, 2018, revealed that the cognitively intact resident “had been interviewed regarding a verbal abuse allegation. In the investigation, the resident denied any abuse by facility staff.” The facility “obtained written statements from the staff involved, and education was completed.”
The survey team reviewed the facility’s Self-Reported Incidents that revealed that “no report had been completed for the alleged verbal allegation that had been reported on July 25, 2018.” The Administrator stated on August 7, 2018, that “an investigation was completed for an allegation that [a State-test a Nurse Aide] had spoken to the resident in an inappropriate manner. The Administrator stated she had been called around 8:30 PM on July 25, 2018.” A nurse stated that the Aide “had spoken to a resident inappropriately.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure the Physician was notified when medications were two hours late. This [deficiency affected one resident] observed during medication administration.”
Documentation shows that a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) obtained the resident’s medications from the medication dispensing system that included drugs to treat depression, anxiety, and different types of chronic pain.” Additionally, opioid narcotic pain medications had been dispensed from the narcotic drawer in the medication cart.
The LPN verified that the resident’s “medications were late, and the medications were scheduled for 8:00 PM.” The LPN stated that “she did not notify the Physician that [the resident’s] medications were late. She voiced she was unsure what the facility policy was and was unsure if she should have called the Physician or not.”
A Registered Nurse (RN) stated during an interview that “if a resident’s medications were administered late, she would expect the staff to contact the Physician and inform them that the medications were late.” The staff member should then “ask if they still want the next dose given at the scheduled time. She voiced the family should be notified due to the late administration of medications.”
A review of the facility policy titled: Change in Condition dated November 2016 revealed that “the purpose of the policy was to provide guidance for the identification of clinical changes that may constitute a change in condition and require intervention and notification.”
