- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Family Member of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #F580 date January 23, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to immediately inform the resident’s responsible party and the resident’s Physician when [the resident’s] sustained a fall with injury and a skin tear injury.”
The severely, cognitively impaired male resident’s Report of a Resident Fall dated January 2, 2019, revealed that “the resident voiced he fell back on the toilet when he sat down earlier in the night [and] complained of discomfort to his daughter. The daughter notified the nurse of the resident’s report.” However, the resident’s physician was not notified until 11:45 AM, even though the resident had fallen at 2:30 AM.
The investigators determined that “there was no documentation of immediate notification of the responsible party or the resident’s Physician in the chart or on the report.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated April 4, 2019, the investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure a resident’s responsible party was immediately notified of a change in condition.”
The resident’s SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) Communication Form and Progress Note documented a change in condition on April 2, 2019, at 11:40 AM. The injury documented was a black/dark red color to the right great toe under the toenail.
In a third summary statement of deficiencies dated October 26, 2017, the nursing home “failed to immediately notify the resident’s responsible party following an accident determined to be a fall.” The Resident Incident and Accident Report and interview with the resident’s sister revealed that the daughter was present and stated that “she is his responsible party and his power of attorney and that she wanted to be notified of any changes in her brother and especially if he had an accident.”
The Responsible Party stated that “she was not notified of the resident being found on the floor under his roommate’s bed by anyone from the facility.” The investigators interviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), who stated that “when she entered the room, she found [the resident] lying on the floor under the roommate’s bed sound asleep.”
