A resident admitted on 6/9/14 with risk of dehydration was hospitalized for severe dehydration on 6/18/14. The facility records of liquid intake and output demonstrated the resident was getting barely over half of the liquids she needed. The monitoring of the resident's hydration was haphazard and her hydration status was poorly monitored. She was found unresponsive on 6/18/14 and rushed to the hospital. The facility was cited for failing to provide sufficient hydration and for failing to monitor and communicate the resident's hydration status.
