- Failure to Provide a Safe, Appropriate Pain Management Plan of Care for a Resident Who Requires Those Services – citation #F697 date August 31, 2018
- Failure to Develop a Complete Care Plan That Meets All the Resident’s Needs with Timetables and Actions That Can Be Measured – citation #F279 date August 9, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure adequate pain management for two residents in a standard survey.” The state investigators interviewed the resident who revealed that they “did not get adequate relief from pain medications administered for their pain.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Record that revealed the resident was receiving “as needed” medication. However, the follow-up pain level was documented as “ineffective and documented on a 1-10 scale.
A review of the resident’s Nursing Assessment revealed that on a scale of 1-10, the “resident’s acceptable level of pain was a 2 out of 10.” During an interview with the resident it was revealed that “they did not get adequately from pain medications administered for their back pain.”
A review of Nurse’s Notes revealed that “there was no documentation of any other interventions attempted to relieve [the resident’s] back pain or any Physician notification of the ineffective results of the pain medication.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated August 9, 2017, the nursing home “failed to ensure complete Physician’s orders and document effectiveness of pain medication for two residents, notify the Physician of missed medications, develop an appropriate interim Care Plan for [one resident], and develop an appropriate interim Care Plan for [another resident].” The nursing home also failed to appropriately administer medications.
The surveyors reviewed the facility’s policy and procedures titled: Medication Shortages/Drugs Not Available dated December 15, 2008, that reads in part: “When medication orders are not received or unavailable, the licensed nurse will immediately initiate action in cooperation with the attending Physician and pharmacy provider. All medication orders unavailable to the patient will be managed with the urgency.”
The nursing home “failed to develop a comprehensive Care Plan for [one resident].” Specifically, “there was no documented Care Plan for a pacemaker.”
