On 11/24/07, a 56 year old male resident died while staff were replacing the tube in his tracheotomy. Blood started to squirt from the stoma and staff called 911 after they tried to ventilate the resident through the stoma and insert smaller tubes. The facility failed to save the resident's life by not covering the stoma with plastic and ventilating him through his mouth.
