According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure the Physician was notified for a change in condition with the resident.” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s medical record and MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment that revealed the resident suffered from numerous major medical conditions, had a “small single mass in the lungs and shortness of breath.
The resident’s Nurses Note indicated that in the morning, the resident had a blood sugar level of fifty-two and was given juice and pudding. Two hours later, the resident’s blood sugar level had risen to ninty-eight although the resident “was lethargic.” The resident refused to eat, and the State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) had gotten the resident up for approximately 1.5 hours.”
The note indicated that the nursing staff “called the resident son to give him a report and the [resident’s] son was concerned about fluid built up in the lungs.” The nursing note indicated that the staff members “would continue to monitor” the resident’s condition. The surveyors say that while there was documentation that the nursing staff had communicated with the resident son, there was no of documentation that the Physician had been notified of the resident complaining of shortness of breath.
The nursing home “failed to ensure fall interventions were in place for [two residents].” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Fall Care Plan that revealed the nursing staff was to “ensure a fall mat was on the floor” when the resident was in bed and in front of the resident’s recliner or wheelchair with the resident was sitting up.”
However, the surveyors observed a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) taking the resident “back to her room and placing her in the recliner.” At that time, the surveyors did not observe the fall mat in place in front of the recliner but was instead seen laying up next to the resident’s bed. The Nursing Assistant verified that the fall mat was to be in place in front of the recliner. This investigation discovered an incidental deficiency that violated Complaint Number OH 427.
