increase medication pass supplement to 120 ml, TID and to recheck the resident’s potassium
levels.
During an interview on 3/6/19,at 9:03 A , the Dietary Manager said she provided the
weights and significant information like hospitalization s, falls, wounds and not eating
to RD B who gives written recommendations to her, the Director or Nursing (DON) and the
MDS/Care Plan coordinator monthly. It has been a while since the facility has conducted at
risk meeting to discuss the information but she followed up on the recommendations that
were in her department such as the supplements.
Observation and interview on 3/4/19, at 12:04 P.M., showed Resident #9 who only ate a
couple of bites of his/her chicken. The resident moved away from the dining table to a
recliner in front of the TV. The resident started making a low wimpy sound then just
started crying with tear drops and nose running. Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) A said the
resident does not eat well. The resident cries a lot and has lost a lot of weight. Staff
try to give him/her Mighty Shakes and protein shakes but can only get him/her to take a
few sips. CNA A said the resident cries often.
During an interview on 3/5/19, at 10:08 A.M., Physical Therapy Staff A said staff crush
the resident’s medications because he/she has trouble swallowing when upset, which is
often. Therapy staff watched the resident eat this morning and he/she actually ate 50% of
his/her pancakes and eggs which is really good intake for him/her. The resident did not
have any problems swallowing this morning.
During an interview of 3/5/19, at 10:48 AM., the Dietary Manager said the resident used to
be out front. He/she was placed on the special care unit because of wandering. He/she did
not eat well so they hoped being of the special care unit with fewer residents and more
assistance would be helpful. He/she is just not eating well but he/she likes orange juice
so they purchased supplemented orange juice which has helped a little. The physician also
increased the resident’s antidepressant which hopefully will help. The resident usually
comes out of his/her room to meals and has a weight gain of 3 pounds this month.
During an interview on 3/5/19, at 4:26 P.M., the MDS/Care plan coordinator said the
resident’s weight loss would not trigger until staff did the resident’s quarterly MDS and
care plan review at the end of March. The Dietary Manager had not informed him/her of any
significant weight loss. They had not been able to do at risk meeting, so he could have
missed knowing about the weight loss since they did not do a (MONTH) at risk meeting.
He/she updated care plans after quarterly assessments if there were changes. The
resident’s (MONTH) quarterly MDS did not trigger for weight loss, therefore there was no
need to update the care plan. He was unaware the resident had a actual significant weight
loss that should have been noted on the December’s MDS and therefore care planned.
During an interview on 3/6/19, at 1:12 P.M., the Administrator said there is limited
information and no follow up on risk meetings. She had to ask the former DON to step down
because things were just not getting done. The former DON was not doing risk assessment
meetings or doing follow-up on things that should have been done such as the resident’s
weight loss. The former DON stepped down in (MONTH) and we just found and hired a new DON
a few weeks ago.

Implement a program that monitors antibiotic use.

Based on observation, interview, and record review, the facility failed to implement,
follow, and monitor a facility-wide antibiotic stewardship program. The facility had three
residents on antibiotics in (MONTH) 2019. This deficient practice had the potential to
affect all residents in the facility. The facility census was 39.

not have unnecessary adverse reactions or development of antibiotic resistant bacteria
infections while entrusting the facility to their care.
– Roles: nursing administration will monitor use of antibiotics to ensure they are
prescribed prudently. They will educate charge nurses on proper requisition of
antibiotics, and not to automatically jump to antibiotic use. Physicians will adhere to
the facility policy and accept education of policy by facility administration.
– Procedures: antibiotics should be started only if there is clear, clinical indication
that an antibiotic is required to reduce the risk of inappropriate antibiotic use; every
effort should be made to collect culture specimens to determine resistance and
