According to state investigators, the “facility failed to notify the responsible party of changes in condition [promptly].” The investigators reviewed the resident’s medical record and Progress Note documented by a Registered Nurse (RN). The documents note that “the resident had bruising on the right, possibly from the side rail. Nurses noted that the bruise was communicated to the family member and the Physician.”
However, during an interview with the Registered Nurse, it was verified that “the area had not been present approximately one-half hour [before] when the nurse had viewed the resident.” The RN stated that “she did not notify the responsible family member of the new injury to [the resident’s] face until Monday morning when the family member was in the facility.”
The surveyors determined that “the facility failed to report an injury of unknown origin to the State agency within 24 hours” as required by law.
