The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to notify [the resident’s] representative/power of attorney and obtain consent before initiating a [medication for one resident] reviewed for unnecessary medications.”
Surveyors noted that an interview conducted with the resident’s representative/power of attorney revealed that the resident “was overly sedated by the facility, [after] increasing [the resident’s] [medications].” The surveyors interviewed the Nursing Home Administrator, who stated that “they were trying to find the right medications to keep [the resident] soothed and not over-sedated.”
The Administrator further stated that the resident “was lethargic on the new medication regimen, so the medications were reduced.” The Administrator said that “[the resident’s] family member was unhappy and pulled [the resident] out of the facility.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Psychoactive Medication Review Consent Form, dated May 31, 2018. The document contained consent for antidepressant medications that “was signed by [the resident’s] power of attorney” on that day.
A further review of the consent form revealed that the antipsychotic medication administered had been added to the form on June 18, 2018. There “was no correlating signature from [the resident’s] power of attorney/representative for the antipsychotic medication and the addition of [other medications].”
The facility “failed to maintain an effective pest control program.” A resident’s spouse stated that “she had seen roaches in the dining room.” During the interview, the surveyor “observed a live and mature roach inside of an opening in the wall by the windowsill.”
A Certified Nursing Assistant stated that “she had seen roaches in the dining room.” Additional observations were made of live and mature roaches, and the dead roach “on the counter storage unit used to hold single service pre-portioned condiments (ketchup, mayonnaise, etc.), and roaches too numerous to count in all stages of life on the shelf under the table used for storing equipment, including soft-sided coolers used for residents who leave the facility” to receive medical treatment.
