The state investigators determined that “the facility neglected to ensure a resident was observed or cared was provided for a period of time that expanded over two shifts for a total of thirteen hours.”
A Nurse’s Note identified the Charge Nurse was approached by a Nurse Aide at 5:20 AM.” The Aide reported that the resident “was sitting on the floor. The note identified the resident was non-responsive to a verbal and tactile stimulant, no respirations were observed, and the carotid pulses were absent.”
The Note identified the Nursing Supervisor was notified, “the resident’s code status was verified and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was initiated after the Registered Nurse’s assessment.” The note indicated that that Nursing Aide had entered the resident’s room “with a meal tray” and left the night before the resident was found on the floor. Video footage shows that a entered the resident’s room with a bag that staff identified as “food delivery service.”
Approximately fifteen minutes later, the Charge Nurse and Registered Nurse (RN) entered the resident’s room. The RN “left the room with the tray, closing the door behind her and then proceeded to walk down the hallway to the medication cart.” The video footage identified that from “6:26 PM [the night before] through 5:19 AM [on the day the resident was found] the staff did not open the resident’s room door or enter the room to visualize the resident.”
The facility’s investigation identified that the Nurse Aide entered the resident’s room at 5:19 AM and “found the resident sitting on the floor, unresponsive in front of a wheelchair.” The investigation “substantiated neglect in addition to a failure to initiate CPR for timely.” Both the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and the Nurse Aide “were terminated.”
