**NOTE- TERMS IN BRACKETS HAVE BEEN EDITED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY**
Based upon observation, interview and record review the facility failed to ensure Resident #1 (1 of 8 records reviewed) was adequately supervised and monitored as he sat in 90+ degree Fahrenheit weather in the direct sunlight for approximately 3hours. This resulted in the resident’s internal body temperature overheating, and the resident becoming unresponsive. The resident was transported to the hospital. He remained on life support at the time of the survey. Subsequently, Resident #1expired a week later. This failure created a situation that resulted in serious injury and harm to Resident #1, and requires immediate corrective action on the part of the facility.
