The state investigators determined the nursing home " failed to complete a criminal background check [for one] newly hired employee, before the employee was allowed to work alone with residents in the facility.”
The facility Administrator stated that “she started working as an interim Administrator [and that] the staff scheduler was doing criminal background checks.” The Administrator stated, “she felt the payroll department should be doing the background checks, so she transferred the task to the payroll department.”
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to assure the medication order was transcribed and administered , per Physician’s orders, causing missed doses for [one resident].” The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who requires “limited extensive assistance with her activities of daily living.”
The resident’s medical records indicated a focus on the decline in activities of daily living, related to a left leg/ankle fracture and impaired skin integrity as a result of a surgical wound.
The resident told the surveyors that she had a kidney transplant and was “taking anti-rejection medication” and receives a dose in the evening. However, the resident stated that she “did not receive the daytime dose.”
A nurse said that “she was responsible for inputting the medication listed [that] came from [the resident’s] discharge instructions and did not know how she missed the second medication [dose].”
The Director of Nursing stated that she expects “the resident’s medications to be completely transcribed into the medical records and to be administered, per Physician’s orders.” The facility Administrator stated she expects “the nursing staff to transcribe orders completely in the medication records and administer medications, according to Physician’s orders.”
The Physician Assistant said that “expects the orders to be administered as ordered and did not believe there were any adverse effects from missing the morning medication, due to the resident still receiving the daily evening dose of medication.”
