- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Family Member of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #F580 date February 1, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to notify the Responsible Party (RP) until the following day that a cognitively impaired wandering resident had been found outside unsupervised.”
The survey team reviewed the General Progress Notes dated January 15, 2018. The note indicated that the resident “made two attempts to open the door and go out. Consent was provided by [the resident’s] family for placement of the wandering device bracelet which was placed on the left ankle.”
A review of the Progress Note dated January 24, 2018, “did not reveal any note that [the resident] had been found outside the facility.” The Risk Management System Report dated the following day of January 25, 2018, created by the Director of Nursing revealed that the day before “at approximately 10:30 PM, [the resident] exited the loading dock and was found sitting on the loading dock by staff.”
The resident’s Physician “was notified” fifteen minutes later. The resident’s Responsible Party was not notified until the following day at 8:20 AM.” The survey team interviewed a nurse who provided care for the resident on the evening that “she was found outside.” The nurse indicated that “she was approached by [the resident’s Nursing Assistant who told her she was unable to locate [the resident] when providing care to another resident.”
At approximately 10:40 PM, the nurse “looked down the hallway outside [the resident’s] room and was able to see her through the glass door sitting in a wheelchair on the loading dock. She indicated she notified the Director of Nursing that the resident “had been found outside of the loading dock but did not document the incident, call the resident’s Physician, or notify the resident’s responsible party.”
