Ok, the family for a short term rehab patient did not place an alarm due to family's refusal (this happened on a wed). He fell a day & a half later, breaking his hip and nose. The NH is coming down hard on the admission nurse since she didn't place the alarm on wed (but remember the family refused). Who is responsible? the admission nurse who wasn't present on the night of the fall? the nurse on duty? or the NH? or no one since the family since refused the alarm & it was documented.
LET ME KNOW.
