Resident Given Another’s Medication at Bethany on the Lake

Neglect was substantiated. The AP was responsible for the maltreatment. The AP set up the medications for a second resident, was distracted, locked the medications in the medication cart and later returned to the cart and gave the medications to the first resident without ensuring the right resident was provided with the correct medications. The AP gave the resident Coumadin, a blood thinner, 10 milligrams (mg), instead of Coumadin 2.5 mg as prescribed.

The medication error like the one discussed above is preventable with proper care and training. Most forms of elder abuse are due to a lack well trained staff.
