- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date June 23, 2017
- Failure to Ensure Nurses and Nurse’s Aides Have the Appropriate Competencies to Care for Every Resident to Maximize Their Well-Being – citation #F 726 date
State investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide services in keeping with standards of practice for medication administration.” Nine residents “received duplicate doses of medications when a nurse failed to sign the Medication Administration Records (MAR) during medication pass, and another nurse gave the same medications again thinking they were not given due to the MAR not being signed.”
The facility “implemented corrective actions and no further incidents of this deficient practice were identified.” The state investigators reviewed the facility’s Medication Error Log over the past year on June 22, 2017. The log revealed that fourteen incidents of “medication errors occurred between June 1, 2016, through June 22, 2017.”
The surveyors interviewed the Registered Nurse (RN) Center Nurse Executive “concerning the medication error incidents.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “gave afternoon medications and did not sign the Medication Administration Records at the time the medications were given.” A second LPN gave the same drugs to the same residents, “not realizing the medications had already been given.”
The Physician was notified and knew orders were obtained. The residents “given the extra medication were seen and assessed by the Physician.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure a Nurse Aide could proficiently demonstrate competency skills necessary to provide care and services for a dependent resident incontinent of bowel and bladder.”
The surveyors observed two Nurse Aides providing perineal care (peri-care) to a resident.” The Aides “breached infection control principles and [used] inadequate cleaning techniques. Peri-care means washing the perineal area (genitals and anal rectal area). Peri-care prevents skin breakdown of the perineal area, itching, burning, odor, and infections.”
