- Failure to Allow the Resident to Refuse Treatment or Refuse to Take Part in an Experiment or Formulate Advance Directives – citation #F155 date May 20, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to honor [a resident’s] advance directives to provide basic life support and initiate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).” The resident “had advance directives that did not include withholding of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at admission.”
At 4:55 AM, the resident “was found in bed, unresponsive with an absence of vital signs.” The facility failed to verify the resident did not have an order for CPR due this failure “to provide CPR for [the resident’s] advance directives, Physician’s orders, and per facility policy denied [the resident’s] wishes for resuscitation. This [failure] resulted in a substandard quality of care and an Immediate Jeopardy.”
The investigation involved a female resident “admitted to the facility from the hospital [for a] short-term rehabilitation following a left ‘below the knee’ amputation.” The Social Services Director stated that “[the resident] was alert and oriented to time, place, and person, and advance directives were discussed at admission.” The Director said that the resident “stated she was a full code. Code status refers to the desire for resuscitation efforts should the need arise.”
Unless the patient “specifically requests not to be resuscitated [DNR – Do Not Resuscitate], CPR is performed.” The Director stated that the resident “did not make any changes to her advance directives.”
A Nursing Progress Note documented at 5:37 AM by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) indicated that a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) was making rounds and went to check the resident. When entering the resident’s room, the resident was noted to be “cool to the touch with no pulse, respiration, or blood pressure.” Another nurse entered the room to “verify that there was no pulse, respiration or blood pressure.”
The Nursing Progress Notes “did not include any documentation regarding [the resident’s] DNR/code status, initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), or any calls to 911.” The LPN stated that “[the resident] was not a DNR, but she said she was not thinking and did not initiate CPR.” She also stated that the Registered Nurse (RN) “did not suggest or initiate CPR.”
