- Failure to Implement Gradual Dose Reductions (GDR) and Non-Pharmacological Interventions Involving Psychotropic Medications – citation #F758 date May 14, 2018
- Failure to Honor Resident’s Rights to a Dignified Existence, Self-Determination, Communication, and Exercise His or Her Rights – citation #F550 date December 13, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure medication prescribed to two residents were “written for no more than fourteen days. The facility failed to attempt any non-pharmacological behavior intervention [before] the administration of these medications.”
The survey stated that the prolonged use of antipsychotic medications “has the potential to have adverse side effects for the resident.” In one case, a resident had an order to take as needed (PRN) medications for agitation. However, “the entry shows no end date for the order. The record documented the order was initiated on April 23, 2018 and had no end date for the provision of this medication.”
The survey team interviewed the Director of Nursing who said, “they learned of the new requirement but have not completed an audit to ensure residents with PRN medications are limited to fourteen days. They provided a list of residents and discontinuation for some residents [and the resident] was not on that list.”
Additionally, a review of the resident’s clinical records revealed Physician’s orders and “there was no specific duration for the ‘as needed’ medication or documentation to the rationale for the extended use past the fourteen days.” During that time, the resident had been administered the medication “a total of eighteen times.”
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to treat residents with dignity.” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to knock on doors and ask permission [before] entering and woke up a resident against their wishes.” It was determined that “the failure to promote each resident’s individual dignity could lead to a lack of self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy.”
The surveyors interviewed one resident who said, “staff came into her room all the time without permission. The resident said she did not like it and it bothered her.”
