- Failure to Provide Basic Life Support Including Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) before the Arrival of Emergency Medical Personnel – citation #F678 date March 27, 2018
According to investigators, the facility “failed to initiate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for [one resident when they were] a full code (a technique of basic life support for the purpose of oxygenating the brain and heart until appropriate medical treatment can restore normal heart and ventilation action).” The resident “was found unresponsive, without a pulse or respirations, and ultimately died.”
The investigator stated that the facility “failed to start CPR as the resident wished. The resident ultimately died, and the deficient practice placed [the resident] in Immediate Jeopardy.” Documentation showed that the resident used a wheelchair from mobility and was able to ambulate. The resident’s medical records and Care Plan indicated that the resident “had altered cardiovascular status related to hypertension (elevated blood pressure).”
A Nurse’s Note documented that a dietary staff member reported to a licensed nurse that the resident “was in the dining room and he/she did not respond to him/her.” The licensed nurse “went to the dining room and found the resident unresponsive [with their] head down, hands down at [their] side, lips, and fingernail bed was cyanotic (bluish discoloration of the skin).”
The licensed nurse then called for assistance before taking the resident “in their wheelchair to their room and the staff manually transferred the resident to [their] bed. The note documented the resident had no breath sounds, pulse, or blood pressure and [their] pupils were nonresponsive. The note documented the staff administered oxygen and notified [a consulting staff member who stated they] would come to the facility.”
Fourteen minutes later, it was documented that the resident “remained with no blood pressure, respiration, or pulse, and [their] pupils were dilated.” Thirteen minutes later, the Nurse’s Notes document that the consulting staff member “arrived at the facility and [they] pronounced the resident dead, with the time of death at 1:30 PM.”
The investigators interviewed staff members who stated that they had seen the resident’s eyes closed when the resident was not breathing and “did not see staff initiate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).” One staff member verified the resident’s name outside the door “was printed in black, which indicated [they were] a full code” meaning they requested CPR when required.
