Yesterday working in a nursing home a family member approached me and rudely said why has a set of vitals not been take on her family member who happens to be actively dying and on hospice care. She said this should be a priority patient and griped at me up and down about it. I didn't know what to say accept that I had not gotten around to it yet. There was no indication that I needed to take vitals, other family was at the bedside since I arrived on the shift. I entered the room 2 times to check on everything and the patient had no signs of distress just lying there quietly. Am I wrong for not taking vitals on this patient?
