According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure [two residents] receive scheduled or ‘as needed’ pain medication timely to provide effective pain relief/pain management” Actual harm occurred to one resident when in Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “failed to administer dental pain medication as ordered, resulting in the resident voicing severe pain, rated as a ten on a scale of 1 to 10, which prevented her from engaging in the activities of daily living that she preferred.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure timely Physician notification related to a resident’s expressed desire to leave the facility.” This deficient practice involved one resident “reviewed for discharge.”
The survey team reviewed a resident’s records that on April 24, 2018, the resident “was requesting his non-alcoholic (NA) beer and [the Social Services Director] explain it was not even 9:00 AM.” The resident stated that “he did not want the beer at that time but wanted to have it so that after therapy, he knew where the NA beer was located.”
The Social Services Director explained to the resident that “the facility would make sure he got his and a beer later. The resident asked for the beer after therapy, and when it was not given to him immediately, the resident stated, ‘why are you playing with me!’”
The resident also stated, “I am out of here in the rain and all!” and headed for the door. The alarm sounded due to the resident’s wander guard (a departure alert system). Staff attempted to redirect the resident and he said, “You can head out the doors.” The staff replied, “Here is your beer!” The note indicated the resident had placed the NA beer in his room and was wandering around the facility.
According to the record review, “there was no evidence the Physician was notified of this incident when the resident expressed his desire to leave the facility and attempted to leave.”
