A review of the resident’s Medication Administration Record indicated that the medication was administered at bedtime. This “order was discontinued.” However, “there are no Physician’s orders to discontinue [the medication] at bedtime.” The state investigators interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who stated that the order had been transcribed incorrectly in the Medication Administration Record, “that he did not know why it was administered every other day instead of daily as ordered by the Physician.”
