- Failure to Ensure Each Resident Receives an Accurate Assessment – citation #F641 date June 27, 2018
- Failure to Implement Gradual Dose Reductions (GDR) and Non-Pharmacological Interventions Involving Psychotropic Medications – citation #F758 date June 27, 2018
According to investigators, the facility “failed to ensure residents’ assessments were accurate for [three] of eighteen assessments reviewed. This [failure] had the potential to affect all sixty residents.”
The survey team reviewed the two residents’ Quarterly Assessment from March 2018. The assessments revealed that each resident “had received an anticoagulant medication in the seven-day look-back period.” However, “each resident’s individualized clinical record “did not document the resident had received an anticoagulant.”
Additionally, one resident’s discharge assessment, dated May 14, 2018, documents that “the resident had been discharged from the facility to an acute hospital. The resident’s clinical record had not documented the resident had checked herself out of the facility [on that date] to move to another state and was never hospitalized,” as stated in the assessment.
The survey team interviewed the Assessment Coordinator and asked “if two residents had received an anticoagulant in the seven-day look-back periods. She stated neither of the residents had been given an anticoagulant and the assessments were incorrect.” The Coordinator also verified that the third resident’s assessment was incorrect because that resident had not been discharged to a hospital as indicated in the document.
The nursing home “failed to ensure resident had not received unnecessary antipsychotic medication.” This failure “had the potential to affect forty-five residents who were receiving antipsychotics” at that time.
The survey team reviewed a resident’s pharmacist recommendation form that was given to the resident’s Physician on July 26, 2017. The document states that the Physician “would like to have discontinued the resident’s medication.” Additionally, the resident had a telephone Physician’s order dated May 2, 2018, that documented to discontinue the antipsychotic medication.
However, when the surveyors reviewed the resident’s clinical record, there was no documentation “any behaviors having warranted the use of an antipsychotic.” The Director of Nursing verified that the “antipsychotic medication should have been discontinued” but was not.
