Based on review of clinical records and interview it was determined the Facility failed to assure chemical restraints were not ordered PRN (as needed) for 11 of 11 Patients on the Behavioral Health Unit. Failure to assure chemical restraints were not ordered PRN did not assure Patients behavior was managed by physician order and not at the discretion or convenience of a nurse. The failed practice was likely to affect all patients admitted to the Behavioral Health Unit. This is a recurrent deficiency that was cited on a complaint survey conducted 10-02-14. This failed practice was likely to affect all patients admitted to the Facility. Example of the findings follow:
A. Patient #18 was admitted [DATE] to the Behavioral Health Unit. Review of the Orders written by the Physician for Patient #18 on 08-17-16 revealed Haldol...IntraMuscular, Q (every)4H(hours) PRN (as needed) for Agitation...
