According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to implement their abuse and misappropriation policy to prevent misappropriation of a resident’s narcotic medications.” The incident occurred when 31 residents were receiving opioid narcotic medications at the nursing home.”
As a part of the investigation, it was determined that the resident “had taken narcotic pain medication for the past seven days of the assessment.” At that time, the resident “was at risk for pain due to their medical condition of pain in the wrist. Interventions included narcotic pain medication as needed.”
However, a review of the resident’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) indicated that on the pain scale the resident was having “no pain.” The resident reveals that she had requested the medication on only a single occasion on April 16, 2018.”
The Self-Report Incident form indicated that the facility “was able to locate all controlled drug receipt/record/disposition forms” except for the resident’s narcotic medications that contain 60 tablets. The facility notified the police and all nurses who had access from the cart between April 13, 2018, and April 17, 2018 “were drug tested and the results were negative.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure residents receive adequate care and services for wounds.” In one incident, the resident “had incontinence” associated with their medical condition “located on his right gluteal fold and fungal rash on his groin.”
The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment “also revealed the resident was admitted to the facility with a Stage III pressure ulcer to his buttocks.” The survey team reviewed the resident’s Treatment Administration Record that indicated in the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “had already signed off on the day shift treatment as completed, even though there was no Zinc Oxide Ointment or [medicated] powder observed on the resident’s buttocks, gluteal fold or groin, as Physician ordered.
The surveyors immediately interviewed the LPN who stated “she had signed off on all of her other treatments that morning, but not as of yet completed the treatments. She stated she planned on doing treatments later that day. She confirmed she should not have signed off on the Treatment Administration Record until the treatments were actually completed.”
