Clinical Decision Support

In your community, how often does this scenario occur?

You arrive in the morning and see that a recently admitted resident was sent to the hospital overnight with increased confusion and fever. In hindsight, you learn that the resident was not themselves, was restless and was assisted to the bathroom multiple times the night before last. The resident dozed yesterday and did not go to the Dining Room for any of their meals and ate little in their room. You review the documentation, track down the Nurse Assistant who cared for the resident yesterday who reports that the resident was “not herself, but I knew she was up most of the night. I reported it to the nurse.”
