According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to investigate an allegation of misappropriation of one resident’s medication from an incident on May 6, 2018.” A Nurse’s Notes from that date revealed that the resident’s narcotic pain medication “was missing.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) reported the missing medication to the Registered Nurse Supervisor on duty that day.”
However, facility documentation showed “no evidence that the alleged misappropriation of medication was investigated” as required by law.
The nursing home “failed to assure that a thorough criminal investigation background check was completed for [one of five] newly hired employees.” According to the facility policy, relating to abuse prevention and reporting, indicates that “all employees must attest to their place of residency over the prior three years, and if the individual has not been a resident of the state for a minimum of three years, a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) background check will be completed.”
However, upon review of an employee’s file, it was revealed that a Nursing Assistant had been hired on June 6, 2016, and an employment application which indicated the resident lived outside the state during the previous year to attend college. The personnel file lacked an FBI background check or evidence that one was initiated.”
The nursing home “failed to notify the Physician of [administering the] wrong dose ordered and also notified the resident or family member of a medication error for [one resident].”
The survey team reviewed a Drug Incident Report that revealed the resident had been administered an antibiotic medication on three occasions receiving three doses. The incident report indicated “that the pharmacy labeled the bag correctly as ordered [but the] medication inside the bag was [a different medication].”
The resident’s Medication Administration Record lacked documentation that on two occasions, the resident “received the medication as ordered. The clinical record lacked documentation that the Physician was notified of the missed doses of [antibiotic medication] and that the resident or family were notified of the medication error.”
