According to state investigators, “the facility failed to implement the abuse policy when [a resident’s] allegation of misappropriation medication was not reported to the police department within 24 hours.” This failure affected one resident “reviewed for abuse.”
The investigators reviewed a Self-Reported Incident (SRI) submitted to the State Agency on January 9, 2018.” The report “indicated there was an accusation against [and Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)] for narcotic discrepancy involving [one resident’s opioid pain medication], which occurred on December 13, 2017.”

An LPN wrote an undated witness statement indicating that on that day the resident asked for two pain medication tablets. When the resident received the drug from the LPN, “she questioned the color as they were white instead of blue.” The LPN reminded the resident “that she had taken [the pills] twice the day before and did not remember what they looked like.”
The resident stated that she had not asked for the pain medication “for a couple of weeks and said, “someone else probably took them.” The LPN “reassured her that she would try to find out what happened and the Director of Nursing was notified.”
The investigators interviewed the facility Administrator who revealed that “the allegation of misappropriation of [that resident’s] narcotic medication was reported to the police department on December 27, 2017.” The Administrator also “verified the allegation of misappropriation of [that resident’s] narcotic medication was not reported to the police department within twemty-four hours” as required by law.
