- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident, the Resident’s Doctor or Family Members of a Change in the Resident’s Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury – citation date April 15, 2016
According to state surveyors investigating a formally filed complaint, “the facility did not immediately inform the resident’s legal representative or interested family member or consult the resident’s Physician when there was a significant change in the resident’s physical, mental or psychosocial status and a need to alter treatment significantly.
For one resident, the “Physician and responsible party/family notification had an issue. Specifically, [the resident] sustained an injury to the right arm.” There “was a fifteen-hour delay notifying the physician. An x-ray obtained [the following day] revealed that the resident had injuries.” This failure “resulted in actual harm that was not an Immediate Jeopardy.”
The state surveyors reviewed the Incident Report Investigation that revealed: “a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was providing bedtime care to [the resident] at approximately 8:30 PM when the resident started hitting the CNA.” The Nursing Progress and Evaluation Summary Note documented by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) during the 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM shift revealed that the CNA “told the LPN that the resident was combative with bedtime care and that the CNA blocked the resident from hitting him with his arm, to her arm and the right side (right upper extremity).
The LPN assessed the resident and found no bruising at 9:00 PM. The LPN “documented that the resident would yell out in pain over and over and ‘as needed’ Tylenol was given twice. There was no documentation of the effect of the Tylenol.”
Documentation shows that the resident yelled out with any movement of the right upper extremity. At 3:00 AM, the LPN noted a large bruise on the resident’s right elbow. The Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor was notified.” However, “there was no documented evidence that the Physician was notified of the bruise or of the resident’s complaints of pain.”
The X-ray Report of the right elbow revealed that the resident “had a nondisplaced [injured] humerus (the long bone in the arm from the shoulder to the elbow).” When the Physician was notified, the doctor stated that “he probably would have sent the resident to the emergency room next-door the night of the incident if he had been notified sooner. He would have started a higher level of pain medication and possibly have ordered a sling at that time.”
