According to investigators, “the facility failed to notify the Physician for [one resident] who had a change in condition, which required hospitalization.” The incident involved a resident with long-term and short-term memory problems and severely impaired decision-making skills.
The resident was receiving antianxiety medication and used a nebulizer inhalator device. The resident’s Nurse’s Notes from 3:22 PM on November 9, 2017, indicated the resident “had a productive cough, was lethargic (less alert and less interested in their surroundings), had coarse lung sounds with wheezes and crackles in the resident’s upper lung fields.”
On December 19, 2016, the resident’s Nurse’s Note stated that the resident “had an axillary (relating to the armpit) temperature of 103 degrees when the staff administered Tylenol and monitored the resident.” However, a review of the medical record revealed “no documentation that the staff notified the Physician).” A few hours later, the updated Nurse’s Notes stated that the resident’s body temperature was 101.4 and that the resident had refused supper and had an increase cough and lung sounds.
However, there was no documentation that the staff had notified the resident’s Physician as required by law. Subsequent reviews of additional Nurse’s Notes through December 26, 2016 indicated that the resident continued to have changes in their medical condition. However, reviewing the medical record revealed: “no documentation the staff notified the Physician of the resident’s [changing] condition.”
