The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] was informed of the risks and benefits of psychoactive medications [before] administration. The deficient practice can result in the resident not being aware of the benefits and the potential adverse side effects of taking psychoactive medications.”
The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who was administered psychoactive medications over numerous months during 2019. However, a further review of the resident’s medical records “did not reveal evidence that the resident had been informed of the risks and benefits of [these dangerous medications].”
The state investigators interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) who stated that “informed consent has to be obtained before the resident is administered [a psychoactive] medication. She stated that the informed consent form is completed, which includes a medication name, the reason the medication as ordered, and a risk and benefits of the medication.”
The RN also stated that “the resident would have to sign the form indicating that they agree or disagree [with taking] the medication.” The Director of Nursing stated that she expects that “staff obtains informed consent [before the administration] of psychoactive medication.” Though asked, the Director of Nursing “was unable to find documentation that informed consent had been obtained for [a psychoactive medication given to the resident].”
The nursing home “failed to meet professional standards of quality by failing to ensure [one resident] was administered medication as ordered by the Physician. The deficient practice could result in a decrease in blood pressure.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Record revealed that the medication “was not administered four times for systolic blood pressure less than 120.” The surveyors interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), who stated that “medications are to be administered according to the parameters ordered by the Physician.”
During an interview with the Director of Nursing, it was revealed that she expects “nurses administer medications according to the parameters ordered by the Physician.” The clinical record review revealed that the medication had not been “administered according to the Physician’s orders.”
