On 4/9/05, a 73 year old resident died after being admitted to an ER with a urinary tract infection, sepsis, respiratory failure and electrolyte disturbance. It was determined she died as a result of not receiving appropriate antibiotic treatment over an 11 day period. In addition, it was noted the resident's catheter was unchanged for 57 days. The facility was cited for failure to continually asses the residents failure to notify the physician and failure to follow the physician's outstanding orders.
