The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure residents were free from receiving excessive doses of drugs for [one resident] reviewed for anticoagulant therapy.” The state investigators reviewed the resident’s Physician’s orders, Medication Administration Record, and Progress Notes that revealed that the resident “was transported and admitted to the hospital related to altered mental status.”
A review of the resident’s Hospital Discharge Paperwork dated November 9, 2018, revealed that the resident’s medications were not properly transcribed in handwriting in the new Medication Administration Record.”
The nursing home “failed to provide a sanitary environment to prevent the potential transmission of medical diseases during [one of two] medication pass observations.”

Upon completion of the administration to the first resident, [the LPN] did not wash their hands or use hand sanitizer but went on to administer medications to the second resident.”
