- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date January 11, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [a resident’s] sample for an insulin review was free from neglectful medication administration practices by the facility staff.” Specifically, “[the nurse] failed to report a significant insulation medication error for five days,” resulting in injury.
It was also noted that the facility “failed to ensure a sufficient corrective action plan was developed and implemented to correct negligent nursing practices related to blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration, resulting in significant insolent medication errors for [two residents].” The deficient practice also caused a “failure to prevent blood glucose monitoring and insulin dose issues for [six current residents] within the facility receiving diabetic monitoring and treatment.”
The surveyors determined that the situation “resulted in a finding of Immediate Jeopardy.”
Failure to Ensure Nurses and Nurse Aides Have Appropriate Competencies to Care for Every Resident in a Way That Maximizes Each Resident’s Well-Being – citation #F726 date January 11, 2019
The “facility failed to ensure nursing staff had appropriate training and competency evaluations with diabetes management, including blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration for [nine residents] sampled for insulin review. This failure resulted in the death of [one resident], significant medication errors for [two other residents], and continued risk of injury to [six current residents] in the facility receiving diabetic management.”
The facility’s abuse report involving the resident dated November 20, 2018. The report revealed that five days earlier, on November 15, 2018, during an evening medication pass, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “entered [a resident] room with medications for [the residents in both the A-bed and B-bed].”
The medications “taken into [the resident’s] room included twenty-eight units of long-acting insulin which was scheduled to be administered at 4:30 PM for [the resident in the B bed].” However, “[the nurse] injected the insulin subcutaneously into [the other resident that was in the A-bed]. Per the investigation conducted by the facility, at the time of the administration, [the resident] stated, ‘what shot?’ and [the nurse] realized her mistake.”
The nurse “reported she checked [the resident’s] blood sugar and found it to be 126 mg/dL, which is within the normal range, so she did not report the incident.”
The resident was transferred to the hospital the following morning after becoming “unresponsive to verbal or painful stimuli.” The resident “had no history of diabetes or order to receive insulin.” Six days later, on November 22, 2018, the resident “passed away.”
