- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date May 23, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure the staff provided intervention of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a full code resident at the time of their death, resulting in neglect at a past noncompliance Immediate Jeopardy level for [one resident].”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s medical records, Physician’s orders, Care Plan, and other records indicated that the resident “had been a full code [before] the revision date.”
A review of the facility’s Description of Incident or Concerns revealed that two Licensed Nursing Assistants found the resident at 1:30 AM “in bed and did not appear to be breathing.” One Licensed Nursing Assistant immediately went to a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who was in charge of caring for the resident and informed the LPN of the resident’s condition.
The records indicate that the Licensed Nursing Assistant “grabbed the vital signs pole (cart to be used to check blood pressure, respiration, temperature, etc.).” The LPN stated that they had administered CPR. However, “all evidence supports that CPR was not provided, the code cart was undisturbed, and the employee’s statement support no CPR was given.”
The report also indicates that the LPN admitted that they had not checked for conclusive signs of death, “did not get the code cart, did not notify the Physician and did not intervene when [the staff saw the resident] one hour before in distress.”
A Licensed Nursing Assistant stated that they had performed rounds and went into the resident’s room and saw that the resident “was pale.” The Nursing Assistant did not think that the resident “was breathing.” The LPN had entered the resident’s room and told the Licensed Nursing Assistants that the resident “passed and to go in and do postmortem care.”
