Substantiated Complaint After Failure to Monitor Glucose at Good Samaritan Society St James
Based on a preponderance of evidence, neglect occurred when the facility failed to monitor the resident’s blood sugar levels in order to maintain the resident’s health. Without blood sugar monitoring, the medical intervention necessary to evaluate and treat the resident’s high blood sugar levels was delayed.
