- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation #F329 date January 20, 2017
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date March 8, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure adequate behavioral monitoring for one resident reviewed for unnecessary medications.” The state investigators observed the severely, cognitively impaired resident “positioned, leaning on his right side in his high-back chair. He had a blank stare on his face, and he did not respond to an attempt to converse with him. His eyes were matted, and he was drooling on his shirt collar.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Current Physician’s Orders that showed an increase in the resident’s medications given orally at bedtime for agitation. A review of the resident’s Progress Notesbetween January 5, 2017, and January 18, 2017, documented that on January 17, 2018, at 3:45 PM, “the resident had a behavioral episode. Further review revealed no behavioral monitoring was documented related to the use of [the resident’s antipsychotic medication].”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that “the nursing staff was not monitoring the resident’s behavior. She stated, it is usually done for more long-term residents, and [this resident] was recently admitted.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) stated that sometimes the resident “refused morning care, waking up, and his morning meal, which required her to redirect him.”
A second CNA confirmed that the resident sometimes refuses morning care. The Unit Manager revealed, “the resident sometimes refused morning care and acted grumpy.”
The facility “failed to provide the necessary treatment and services consistent with professional standards of practice to promote healing and prevent worsening of pressure ulcers by failing to provide care for [one resident].”
The state investigators reviewed a resident’s Nursing Admission Evaluation Form that indicated that the resident had “an open area in the center of his coccyx, measuring 1.0 cm x 1.0 cm x 1.5 cm with a depth of 0.2 cm.” The survey team asked the Unit Manager to provide a wound care order written before that date. A review of the electronic Medical Records indicated that no order could be found. The manager stated that “there is no way he did not have something in place until February 7, 2018.”
However, the Unit Manager confirmed on March 8, 2018, that “no treatment order was put in place for his coccygeal pressure ulcer until February 7, 2018” saying that “usually does not happen.”
