- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Responsible Party of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #F157 date March 17, 2017
According to state surveyors, the facility did not notify the Physician of changing episodes in the resident’s condition. The deficient practice involved to residents “reviewed for unnecessary medications.”
The investigative team reviewed a resident’s Physician’s orders to “call the Physician of blood sugar is less than 60 mg/dL or greater than 3050 mg/dL.” The resident’s Certified Nurse Practitioner Progress Note revealed: “due to an underlying condition with kidney complications, [the resident] had been running low glucose.”
The Nurse Practitioner Plans included lowering the resident’s medications, stopping the sliding-scale coverage from determining the amount of insulin necessary and “continue monitoring glucose and call if less than 70 mg/dL or greater than 350 mg/dL.”
When the investigators reviewed the resident’s Medication Administration Record, it was revealed the resident “had had a blood sugar of 50 mg/dL. There were not Nurse Progress Notes or documentation of nursing interventions.” On February for 2017, a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) “went to the resident’s room and found the resident unresponsive. The STNA yell for help and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) rushed to the room and checked his blood sugar which was 28 mg/dL.”
The LPN obtain the resident’s medication and administer the incident to the resident intramuscularly. “10 minutes later, the resident’s blood sugar dropped to 20 mg/dL. The LPN raised the resident’s head and removed the resident’s clothes which were drenched with sweat, yelling his name to arouse him.” The LPN then “checked his blood sugar and it was 25 mg/dL and 30 mg/dL. Twenty minutes later, he returned to 53 mg/dL.”
At that time, the resident began regaining consciousness, opened his eyes and started speaking with the STNA and LPN. The LPN then contacted the Certified Nurse Practitioner and received a new order “to send the resident to the emergency room to be evaluated and treated. When the ambulance transportation service arrived, the resident refused to be transported to the emergency room.”
On multiple occasions, there were no notations in the MAR that the Physician had been notified of a change in the resident’s condition involving blood sugar levels outside of the stated parameters. A review of the facility’s policy included “repeating the blood glucose levels every fifteen minutes, assess probable cause, notify the Physician and document the episode, probable cause and treatment in the nursing notes.”
