LTCNS, LPN 623 Posts Specializes in Clinical Documentation Specialist, LTC. Feb 11, 2016 Good on you for advocating for your resident! A temp. of 101 would've had me sending her to the ER as well. I would rather deal with the PTB than find myself sitting in court answering as to why the resident was left untreated when she clearly showed s/s of a UTI, then rapidly declined and died from septic shock. Not on my watch.I'm curious...What was her blood pressure before you sent her out?
