Element 2 - Example
Given a deficient practice statement that says:
- Based on interviews and record reviews, 2 of 3 individuals who were reviewed for interventions for maladaptive behaviors were started on psychoactive medication regimens for inappropriate behaviors before written informed consent was obtained. W263 was cited. There are a total of six individuals at this facility who are on psychoactive medication regimens.
The facility's plan of correction would need to address the following:
- What actions did the facility take to assess the other individuals of the facility (other than those identified during the survey) for the types of medication they were receiving?
- Informed consent is required for all individuals taking psychotropic medication. The facility would need to determine if there were others lacking the required informed consent. If any were lacking, the consents would need to be obtained. The facility would need to document when the consents were obtained.
- How will the facility ensure that informed consent will be obtained prior to future implementation of psychotropic medication regimens for inappropriate behaviors?
