The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow accepted standards of nursing practice regarding care for [one resident] and documentation of vital signs for [another resident].” This failure “exposed the resident’s potential clinical complications.”
The state investigators reviewed a resident’s Admission Care Plan and medical records. The surveyors say that “for the check of fistula/bruit/thrill, there were no initials that it was checked on the 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM shift” on numerous occasions between April 21, 2016, and April 30, 2016.
The surveyors indicated that “for the removal of the dressing from [the resident’s] fistula, there were no initials to indicate that the dressing had ever been removed as it was prescribed for hours after her return from [medical treatment].”
The facility “failed to provide necessary care and services for [one resident] and document vital signs for [another resident]. Lack of monitoring and assessment can cause worsening of the condition and health complications.” In one case, a review of the resident’s Nurse’s Notes from February 2, 2016, to February 12, 2016, showed that the resident, on February 3, 2016, was receiving 2.08 L of oxygen.
However, the nursing staff failed to obtain or record vital signs, but the resident “continued to have 2.0 L of oxygen via nasal cannula.” Documents four days later, on February 7, 2016, noted that “[the resident] had a cough but continued to have oxygen at 2.0 L per minute.” Two days later, on February 9, 2016, the coughing continued, “but there was no documentation of vital signs for the 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM or 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM shifts.”
By February 11, 2016, during the 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM shift, the resident “complained of feeling unwell, and continued to have oxygen at 2.0 L per minute.”
Later that day, the resident was found “drooling and unresponsive with no palpable pulse.” The investigators look for a SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) guide sheet that would have directed the nursing staff to check “respiration, finger stick for diabetic residents, blood pressure, apical heart rate, and oxygen saturation. These were not done at the time but were conducted when the paramedics were on the scene at 1:30 AM.”
