- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date March 13, 2018
The state investigators determined the nursing home "neglected to connect a resident to a non-invasive medical ventilator to provide oxygen, as ordered by the Physician, for [one resident] for respiratory services.” When the resident “was found by staff without a Physician ordered non-invasive medical ventilator, he was deceased.”
The investigative team reviewed the resident’s Care Plan related to respiratory illness. The document states that the goals include that the resident “would have clear and equal breath sounds bilaterally and have no signs or symptoms of infection by the review date.” The interventions indicated that the nursing staff was to provide oxygen and suction as needed, and that the resident “was to be placed on a non-invasive mechanical ventilator at night, as ordered.”
A Respiratory Therapy Note signed by the Therapist revealed that a nurse had informed the Therapist that the resident “had passed away in the night.” The therapist asked the nurse what happened, and the nurse stated that Nursing Assistants put the resident “to bed around 10:15 PM. They returned to the [resident’s] room again at 10:55 PM and found [the resident] deceased.”
The therapist asked the nurse if the resident had been placed on the non-invasive mechanical ventilator, as ordered. The note revealed that the nurse stated that “she had not gotten there yet due to her medication pass, so she was unsure if he was on [the non-invasive ventilator].”
A review of the Non-Invasive Mechanical Ventilator Event Log indicated that the device “was powered out at 10:51 PM and stopped at 10:57 PM. The note indicated there was no ‘as needed’ respiratory therapist on the shift at the time of the event.”
The therapist stated that the resident “was very stable and had not been sick, had no increase in oxygen needs, and was only suctioned maybe [a few times] a day.” The Nurse Aide stated that the resident “was placed in bed and care was provided [and that she handed the resident] his call bell, urinal, and oxygen tubing.”
The Nurse Aide stated that the resident “was able to put his oxygen on, and she handed him the tubing, but was not sure if he placed it on himself or not.”
