The surveyors noted the facility “failed to ensure that one resident given four doses of [injectable medication] was free from a chemical restraint. This deficient practice was identified for one of six residents reviewed for psychoactive medication use.”
The surveyors documented observation of a resident “in a recliner in the dining room. The resident smiled, laughed, and spoke, but the speech was unintelligible. The surveyor observed the resident self-feeding.” The resident was later observed ambulating in the hallway.
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Medical Records that showed upon admission, there “was no Physician ordered psychoactive medications. The next chronological [documentation] indicated the resident was admitted [to the facility] via a stretcher. The note indicated the resident was restless, anxious, aggressive, and had received 2 mg of anti-anxiety medication [while] at the hospital.”
The next documentation shows that the nursing staff had difficulty obtaining vital signs “due to the resident’s aggressive behavior.” However, subsequent admission notes indicated that “the resident had no behavioral issues and the second note indicated behaviors had been observed but did not indicate at what time they occurred or what had transpired between the two notes.”
A follow-up notation shows that the resident was given anti-anxiety medication as needed for agitation. One note “indicated the resident was very anxious and had increased agitation.” However, the documentation does not include information “about what non-pharmacological interventions had been attempted, how long the resident’s behaviors persisted in how significant the behaviors were [before] administration of an intramuscular [injectable antianxiety medication].”
There was also no documentation to indicate [that the resident] was experiencing significant behaviors warranting the use of an injectable drug.”
According to investigators, the “facility failed to follow Physician’s orders, notify the Physician when necessary and provide [care according to] professional standards of clinical practice.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff was identified for one resident whose “drug regimens were reviewed.”
The nursing home “failed to provide timely and appropriate care and services in response to an unwitnessed fall resulting in injury and to an identified dental need. The deficient practice was identified [for one resident] reviewed for falls, who experienced a delay in treatment of [their medical needs].”
The facility “failed to adhere to appropriate infection control protocols.” The surveyors observed the Director of Nursing entering “the second-floor dining room and walked over to the sink [to] wash her hands for six seconds and then turned [off the water] with her bare right hand” increasing the potential risk of the spread of infection and cross-contamination.
