The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to assess the resident’s level of pain [before] administering ‘as needed’ pain medication in [two ‘as needed’] medication administrations. In one of the two medication administrations, the facility failed to reassess the effectiveness of the medication administered.”
The state investigators determined that “the facility’s failure had the potential for the resident to experience ineffective pain management.” The investigators reviewed a resident’s Medication Administration Record that “did not have a resident pain reassessment within one hour. The dose administered on May 13, 2018, at 10:43 AM was reassessed at 12:33 PM, one hour and fifty minutes later.”
The facility “failed to train one newly hired staff member regarding misappropriation of resident property. This failure had the potential for violations or lack of identification and prevention of resident mistreatment and abuse.”
An employee record review and concurrent interview with the Director of Human Resources revealed that a Certified Nursing Assistant did not complete training on misappropriation of resident property at the time of hire.” This failure was confirmed by the facility’s Assistant of Social Service.
The nursing home “failed to provide rehabilitative nursing care to [one resident] as prescribed by the Physician. This failure placed [the resident] at risk for a decline in physical strength.”
A review of the resident’s records indicated that the resident had been prescribed by the Physician to receive rehabilitative nursing services five times per week. However, a review of the weekly summary notes and Rehabilitation Nursing Care notes for January, February and March 2017, indicated that the resident received less than the prescribed care and only “anywhere from two to five times per week.”
A Licensed Nurse “confirmed that the restorative nursing care program was provided to the resident less than prescribed” for the months indicated above.
