On 10/12/07, a resident choked on food, was taken to the emergency room and died later that day. Due to a history of choking on food, the resident's careplan directed he be fed by a CNA. While being fed by a CNA on 10/12/07, the resident took a big piece of burrito off his plate and choked, leading to his death. The CNA did not know of the precautions in place to avoid choking. The facility was also cited for failing to provide prompt emergency care because a nurse wrongly determined that the resident had a DNR (do not resuscitate) order. There was no such order.
