- Failure to Provide a Safe, Appropriate Pain Management Plan of Care for a Resident Who Requires Those Services – citation #F697 date December 4, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to assess for pain timely and provide interventions for pain relief for [two residents].” In one case, a resident “was on a scheduled pain medication regimen and did not receive non-medication interventions for pain, and currently was not in pain.”
The last pain assessment completed on October 12, 2018, revealed that the resident “was not in pain, had [a medication] and Tylenol ordered, and they were effective.” However, the resident completed a grievance report on October 19, 2018, “alleging that [the nurse] did not give them his medications on time at night.”
Documentation shows that on October 27, 2018, the resident “reported bilateral hips hurt due to being jolted on the van going to IHOP. A report was faxed to the Physician requesting pain medication.” The Progress Notes on October 28, 2018, revealed the Physician’s orders. When asked how he feels, he stated “he did not feel anything.”
The next Progress Note dated November 1, 2018, at 6:00 AM revealed that the resident “had just been awake most of the night, respirations labored on room air, blood pressure was 180/90 and temperature was 99.3°F. The day shift nurse stated that the resident was not acting right. The Physician was called, and he ordered the resident to be sent out to the hospital for evaluation.”
The Physician received a note that the patient had “got a jolt in his wheelchair coming off the van ramp. Bilateral hips are hurting, and [the patient] wants a pain prescription. Stronger than Tylenol.”
The investigators interviewed the resident on December 4, 2018, just after noon. The resident stated, “he did not remember why he went out to the hospital earlier this month. He stated last night that [the nurse] did not give him his pain medication. It was an agency nurse. His pain level was eight now. He stated that the day shift nurse knew that. He stated he got his pain medicine about an hour ago, and it had not kicked in yet.”
