- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Member of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #580 date March 3, 2018
According to state investigators, the “facility failed to ensure the Physician was notified of a change in condition.” The severely, cognitively intact resident “expired at the facility.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Care Plan that showed one intervention “for the staff to obtain vital signs and laboratory test as ordered. The intervention documented for the staff to monitor the values and readings and to report to the Physician.”
The resident’s “clinical record documented the resident exhibited respiratory distress and was admitted to the hospital.” The resident had been transported to the hospital to “receive two units of blood.” However, the hospital staff notified the facility that “the blood transfusion was not initiated while waiting for a notification of the primary care provider of the resident’s blood pressure.”
Later in the day, the resident had completed the transfusion and was ready to be transported back to the facility. At that time, the resident’s vital signs “were within normal limits.” By 7:00 AM, the resident’s Nurse’s Notes documented that the resident’s “respirations were labored on oxygen with wheezes noted to both lungs.”
Fifteen minutes later, the documentation shows that the resident was “very restless, pulling at the oxygen, pushing on the wall, exhibiting disorganized thinking and was confused.” At 2:00 PM, the resident “was resting in bed and exhibited no signs or symptoms of distress.”
During the night, the Nurse’s Notes state that the resident was assessed and “was not breathing, warm to the touch, [the nursing staff] notified the son, Director of Nursing and Administrator.” In a separate Nurse’s Note, the doctor was notified and gave orders “to release the body to the funeral home.”
A close review of the documentation shows that while the resident was still alive, the resident “was shaking and no complete vital signs were obtained. The Director of Nursing was asked if the nurse should have notified the Physician of the resident’s change in condition.” The Director replied, “Yes.” The Director verified that “vital signs should have been obtained [for] the nurse to adequately assess and monitor the resident’s condition.”
Even though the state investigative surveyors asked the Director of Nursing and Facility Administrator for a copy of the facility’s policies “on Physician notification monitoring post-blood transfusion” neither item “was provided by the end of the survey.” The resident’s Physician returned a surveyor’s telephone call and verified that “he expected to be contacted if the resident had significant changes in condition.”
