In an interview with staff #10 on 02/10/2021, staff #10 stated, "Staff #10 am the Clinical Program Therapist of Well Bridge Healthcare Fort-Worth regarding patient #1. He was inpatient 12/01/2020-12/17/2020. I attempted to meet with [Patient #1]on 12/15/2020 to complete his discharge paperwork between 1-1:30 pm. However, [Patient #1] was uncooperative and refused to comply. Met with patient #1 again between 3-3:30pm he was cooperative in the completion of his discharge at this time. I received a call from MHMR days later (uncertain exact date or time) regarding whether or not patient #1 had received the Invega Sustena Injection. I informed the MHMR I would need to do some research and get back to them regarding this matter. I diligently inquired whether or not patient #1 had received the injection. I was informed patient #1 had received the injection. Unfortunately, I was notified due to patient #1 discharging, the documentation was no longer available. However, I was unfamiliar with how to locate the documentation of said injection. I wasn't trained or familiar with eMar. I did not witness patient #1 receive said injection. I followed up with MHMR that I had been informed patient #1 received the injection. However, I was informed the documentation of said injection was no longer available in the database due to patient #1 already discharging."

In an interview with staff #2, it was confirmed that an injection of Invega Sustenna 156 mg, administered at the hospital was not documented on patient #1's Discharge Summary nor was the due date for the patients next scheduled injection.
