- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Met Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F658 date April 13, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to follow its policy on Medication Administration and failed to provide services according to professional standards of quality.” Specifically, “a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) determined the Time of Death (TOD) of [a resident], which was outside the professional scope of practice.”
The nursing staff administered blood pressure medication “without following the ordered parameters for [the resident].” The order dose for the pain medication 5% patch “was not clarified with the Physician before administration to [another resident].” An LVN “failed to check the resident’s identification band and failed to assess the pain level [before] medication administration for [three residents].”
The “failure to follow professional standards of clinical practice had the potential to place residents at risk for unsafe health environments, serious complications, and medication administration errors.”
A review of one resident’s Nurse’s Progress Note indicated that the resident is “not breathing, no pulse noted, body warm to the touch, called the hospice agency and notified them.” The patient was not breathing and had little pulse at 6:40 PM on February 22, 2018. Another Nurse’s Note from the same day showed “time of death [during the] hospice nurse visit, absent vital signs confirmed. TOD by the nurse confirmed 8:40 PM today, February 22, 2018.”
The note “was signed by the Hospice Nurse with the initials of the LVN after the name.” However, another LVN confirmed that “the Nurse’s Note was signed by an LVN from hospice, and the Nurse’s Progress Note dated February 22, 2018 was signed by the LVN from the facility.” The facility Director of Staff Development acknowledged that the time of death was confirmed by two different Licensed Vocational Nurses and that the “Time of Death should be confirmed only by a Physician or Registered Nurse (RN).”
In a separate incident involving a medication pass, a Registered Nurse prepared the medication at 30 mg for one resident stating that the systolic blood pressure was 127/63 and the pulse rate was 69. The Registered Nurse went to the resident’s room, verified the resident’s identification band and administered the medication.
However, the Registered Nurse then stated during an interview that “the medication should have been held because the pulse rate was below 90 [and said that] she would call the Physician to clarify the order, and it should have been clarified before.”
