According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure a complete and thorough investigation was completed regarding possible misappropriation of narcotic medication, missing money for [a resident], and possible abuse for [another resident].” One incident was documented in a facility’s Self-Reported Incident (SRI) dated January 18, 2018.
The report indicates that the Director of Nursing, a Registered Nurse (RN), and a Pharmacist Consultant entered the office of the Director of Nursing to “destroy discontinued narcotic medication. The investigation indicated [that the RN] removed the cart’s narcotics from the destruction box and gave them to the pharmacist with the corresponding narcotic records that indicated the number of narcotic tablets on each card.”
The documentation shows that the Director of Nursing “then had to leave the office unexpectedly. When she returned, [the pharmacist consultant] told her that seven cards of narcotics were not present, despite the narcotic records sheet indicating they should be in the box.”
The investigators interviewed the facility Administrator who “confirmed the missing narcotics had been discovered on January 18, 2018. She indicated the Director of Nursing no longer work at the facility, having been terminated due to other performance issues about a month after the incident. She could not be reached by phone. She stated the conclusion of the investigation, although confusing and the SRI, revealed [that the RN] had been aware for some time [before] the discovery of the missing medications that the lock on the medication storage box was broken and only work sometimes.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure [a resident] was safely transferred using a Stand Up Lift device.” The incident involved a cognitively impaired resident who requires the “extensive assistance of two staff for transfers.”
A review of the resident’s Nurse’s Progress Note revealed that the resident was “lying on the floor with the Stand Up Lift device under her leg.” The resident “acquired and abrasion of 2.0 cm x 1.5 cm to the right side.” The resident stated that “she was sitting on the side of the bed when her feet slipped, and she fell to the floor.
