- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation Date #F600 date October 5, 2018
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to prevent terminal neglect, by not performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR [for one resident]. Some fifty-four residents had full code status” in the facility.
A review conducted by the surveyor’s found that the resident “was full code status and was found unresponsive in the early morning hours.” The “Staff Nurse on Duty did not perform CPR.” The “end result was the resident died.” This “failure was identified to be in Immediate Jeopardy.”
A review of the resident’s clinical records revealed Physician’s orders where a Nurse Practitioner Progress Note indicated that “the patient wanted to be changed from a ‘Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)’ to a ‘Full Code.’” A Care Plan Meeting Note revealed that the “resident expressed the desire to remain a Full Code.” The resident’s Full Code Status was confirmed by the facility Administrator and the Director of Nursing.
A Nursing Note indicated that the staff went to check on the resident “at 2:45 AM.” At that time, the resident “had no pulse, no blood pressure, and no respiration (cardiopulmonary arrest).” The resident’s body was very cool to the touch.”
The survey team interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) who stated that “she was aware [that the resident] was a Full Code.” The RN stated that a few hours earlier, “she gave the resident some pain medication. At 2:45 AM, she found [the resident] cold and hard as a rock. She felt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) was not needed due to the patient’s condition, and the patient was at the end of life.”
The RN stated that the resident was receiving “pain medication every six hours, and that is what they do at the end of life. She said she called the son soon after the resident was found. The body was released to the funeral home at 6:45 AM.”
The RN stated that she ‘forgot to call the doctor and inform him of the resident’s condition, that she withheld CPR, or to obtain an order to release the body to the funeral home.”
