- Failure to Provide Safe and Appropriate Respiratory Care for a Resident When Needed – citation #F695 date November 16, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure that residents who needed oxygen therapy were provided such care, consistent with professional standards of practice.” Specifically, “the facility failed to have a Physician order. This failure affected one resident who was placed at risk of receiving incorrect or inadequate oxygen support and could result in a decline in health.”
The investigation involved a moderately, cognitively impaired resident who “requires the extensive assist of two persons for bed mobility and transfers.” The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment revealed that “the resident requires the extensive assist of one person for dressing, eating, toilet use and personal hygiene [and] received oxygen therapy.”
The survey team interviewed and observed the resident while “in bed, dressed in a gown, and was well-groomed.” The observation revealed that the resident’s “head of the bed was elevated [and] the oxygen was 2.0 liters via a nasal cannula.” The surveyor attempted to interview the resident, but he did not respond verbally.”
A review of the resident’s Medication Administration Record indicated that the order for the two Liters per minute via nasal cannula oxygen delivery was discontinued ten days earlier. The facility Director of Nursing indicated that the resident had been readmitted to the facility and explained that “the nurse on the evening shift entered the admission orders.”
The Director “further stated she was also still new to the facility and learning their system.” A Licensed Vocational Nurse stated when interviewed that “during the previous night, [the resident] was readmitted, and he entered all the resident’s orders and called the Physician to verify all orders.”
The Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that “he also looked at the resident’s old order as well.” The nurse stated that “he did put in an order for oxygen but did not know what happened to the order.” The nurse stated that “may be the order fell off; he did not know what happened.”
