- Failure to Honor a Resident’s Right to Formulate an Advance Directive – citation #F578 date November 13, 2018

According to state investigators, “the facility did not ensure the advanced directives formulated for [ten of forty-seven residents] regarding cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) would be honored. Specifically, the facility did not effectively implement a system to identify these residents at all times who have written consents for DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) that they would not be resuscitated when indicated.”
The surveyors reviewed the facility’s policy and procedures regarding cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The documentation shows that “a yellow dot will be placed on the outside of the clinical record cover, and a yellow dot will be placed on the ID (identification) band to indicate that the resident has a DNR order. All others will be considered full code and will be resuscitated.”
The state surveyors observed a resident who “had no ID band applied. This [problem] was immediately brought to the attention of the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) caring for the resident. A few minutes later, [the CNA] showed the surveyor that the resident was wearing an ID band with a white strip” to indicate resuscitate when necessary. However, the resident “has had a written consent to a DNR order” for some time.
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s medical record where a yellow dot was on the spine of the resident’s medical record, and a yellow dot was on the outside of his room.”
The nursing home “did not ensure [one resident reviewed for medical treatment had ongoing communication between the treatment center] and the facility regarding the resident’s response to [their medical treatment].” The resident was receiving services at a community-based center three days out of every week.
While the resident’s Plan of Care indicated the medical treatment, the document “did not reflect how the facility would communicate” with the center that was providing the treatment.
