- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody Resulting in Death – citation #F600 date January 4, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing facility “failed to ensure residents were free from neglect for [one resident] when the resident experienced a choking episode while eating a meal unsupervised in his room, in the bed.” The “staff did not recognize the emergent situation and delayed calling emergency services.”
A review of the resident’s medical records indicated that the resident “had multiple teeth extractions, and there was no documented assessment performed by licensed nurses after [the resident] returned from his dental appointments.” The resident’s “multiple teeth extractions could have placed the resident at a higher risk of choking, affecting his chewing and swallowing ability. These facts were not communicated to the Speech Pathologist for a swallow evaluation to be done.”
The state investigative team determined that “the facility did not respond timely to the emergent situation and the delay in response lead to the resident’s death. Actual harm to [the resident] that resulted in a choking episode led to the resident’s death [which initiated] an Immediate Jeopardy situation.”
The surveyors interviewed a licensed nurse who stated “’I do not know why the resident went to the dentist’ [and that] she was not aware the resident had tooth extractions whenever he would go to his dental appointments or what procedure was performed by the dentist.”
The nurse stated that the reason why the resident was going to the dentist should have been documented in Progress Notes, stating it is “important licensed nurses assess and document in the Nurse’s ProgressNotes every time [the resident] went to his dental appointment and after the resident comes back from his dental appointment, to ensure continuity of care and provide his care needs.”
