  • Failure to Notify a Resident’s Physician of a Change in Their Condition Including a Decline in Their Health or Injury

    In a summary statement of deficiencies dated 04/12/2016, an incident report investigation was opened against the facility for its failure to "notify the physician of a significant change in condition for [a resident] reviewed for a change in their condition.” The state investigator noted that “this failure resulted in [the resident] having continued bloodied bowel movements and expiring four days later from gastrointestinal bleeding due to warfarin toxicity.”

    The deficient practice was first noted in the state investigator’s findings after reviewing a resident’s 3:10 AM 03/22/2016 Progress Notes that documents that the patient “had at least two large bloody stools on the second shift; [the resident] then had three bloody stools on the third shift; [the resident] was pale, cool to the touch, altered level of consciousness, delayed responses; [the resident] began throwing up bright red blood; and was sent to the local hospital/emergency room.”

    The resident’s 03/22/2016 Event Debriefing Tool documents a “delay of care [when the resident] started having coffee grounds stools, pale[ness], and weakness during the first shift on 03/21/2016.” It was also noted that on the second shift, the resident “had one large coffee ground stool.”

    The resident’s 03/26/2016 Death Record that documented that the resident expired at 8:15 AM on that date. The investigator interviewed the facility Director of Nursing just after noon on 04/12/2016 who confirmed that on 03/21/2016, the resident “started having bloody bowel movements on the day shift and at the time [the resident’s physician] was notified and ordered some lab work.” However, the physician “was not notified of any bloody stools that occurred on the evenings or night shift and in the early hours of 03/22/2016 [when the resident] was sent to the local hospital [… with] a G.I. bleed and warfarin toxicity.”

    The facility’s Medical Director was interviewed the following day at 3:35 PM and stated “that the facility did not contact him regarding [the resident’s] continued bloody stools and that he would have expected the facility to do that. He also said that they made a mistake and someone was fired.”

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home.
