- Failure to Give and Get Quality Laboratory Services and Tests Timely to Meet the Needs of the Residents – citation #F502 date November 2, 2017
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure a Physician order urinalysis was obtained [promptly].” The deficient practice by the nursing staff affected one resident “reviewed for hospitalization.”
The incident involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who needs the “extensive assistance with toileting, was frequently incontinent of bladder.” The nursing staff received a “Physician’s orders to send a urinalysis culture and sensitivity (UA C&S) in the morning and make straight catheterization.”
A review of a general note documented on the same day revealed a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) reported that the resident’s “urine had a foul odor and a new order for a UA C&S to be sent in the morning and make a straight catheterization.” The documentation shows that the nurse attempted straight catheterization the resident for the urinalysis when the resident “became combative, kicking her legs, yelling no, no, no, go, go, go and pointed her finger at the door. The urine sample was not obtained.”
However, “there was no documentation [that day or the following day] in the medical record regarding staff attempting to attain [the resident’s] UA C&S.” Subsequent reviews of daily medical records revealed that there was no notation of the staff’s attempt to obtain the resident’s UA C&S sample for the next five days.
On the fifth day, at 2:03 PM, the general note revealed that the resident “had a fever of 101.0 degrees Fahrenheit. Tylenol was given by the Charge Nurse [and] the temperature was rechecked and was 99.8 degrees Fahrenheit and of blood pressure of 96/48 manually. The nursing staff contacted a family member to make aware that the urinary analysis was positive, and the culture and sensitivity test was still pending.”
The resident was transferred to the emergency room where the “emergency squat arrived and transported the resident to the hospital. The facility Director of Nursing verified that “there was a delay in the urinary analysis and culture and sensitivity test because the resident was not labeled.”
