Citation Details

**NOTE- TERMS IN BRACKETS HAVE BEEN EDITED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY** Based on record review and staff interviews, the facility did not ensure that a resident clinical record was complete and accurately documented. Specifically, a resident with doctor orders for nutritional supplements (Glucerna Shake and Liquid Protein Supplement) were not transcribed. (Resident #315). The findings are: Resident #315 is a [AGE] year old with [DIAGNOSES REDACTED]. Physician orders [REDACTED]. Review of Medication Administration Records (MAR) dated date of 5/19/16 documented discontinuance of the LPS SF (sugar free) 30 ml PO QD and Glucerna Shake 8 oz PO TID. Review of Medication Administration Records from 5/19/16 to 6/30/16 revealed no documented evidence that the supplements were administered. The Certified Nursing Assistant Accountability Record (CNAAR) for (MONTH) (YEAR) did not document intake of Glucerna Shake supplement. On 6/28/16 at 9:39 AM, the Registered Nurse (RN) stated that the the nurse is responsible for entering in orders and the Doctor or the Nurse Practitioner (NP) signs off on the orders. The RN then stated nutritional supplements (Glucerna Shake and LPS) are documented on the MARS. On 6/28/16 at 3:46 PM, the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) stated that the doctor puts in orders and the nurse reviews them. The LPN further stated that she didn't think to question that the supplements were missing in the MAR because the resident has always been getting it. She further stated that she doesn't always check the doctor orders against the MARS everyday. On 6/30/16 at 10:50 AM, the Director of Nursing (DON) stated that nurses are responsible for checking the doctor's orders with the MAR, and administer medications or supplement. Nurses are trained upon hire. She further stated that since the nurses check the MAR daily, they should've caught the error. 415.22(a)(1-4)

Plan of Correction: ApprovedJuly 8, 2016

I. Immediate Corrective Action:
? Resident #315 was identified and a special review CCP meeting was held on 6/28/16 to determine any negative outcomes from this citation. No negative outcome resulted from the omitted documentation as the resident gained weight and her [MEDICATION NAME] level improved.
? The nurses who failed to document the provision of supplements to the resident received disciplinary counseling.
? Immediate in-service was provided to the involved nurses addressing physician order [REDACTED].
Responsible Person: Director of Nursing
