I did a visit at a facility today. I shared my concerns with the facility nurse and she responded as if her responsibility was to only send a fax to the doctor and failed to alert him to why he was receiving the fax. I could not determine if she did not have the scope of knowledge to realized that a blood pressure of 77/36 and/or a blood pressure of 211/114 was a serious medical problem. I would like to give her the benefit of the doubt I just don't think she gets it.
