VIOLATION: CONTENT OF RECORD - DISCHARGE DIAGNOSIS Tag No: A0469
**NOTE- TERMS IN BRACKETS HAVE BEEN EDITED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY**

Based on observation, review of closed patient medical records and interview of the Risk Management staff, it was determined that patient discharge summaries were not completed by the physician within the required 30 days after patients discharge. This was evident for 1 out of 5 closed patient medical record reviews.

Patient #16 was admitted on [DATE] and discharged on [DATE]. A review of the patient's electronic medical record revealed that the Discharge Summary (Draft) was blank. There was no indication that the Discharge Summary had been started or attempted. The Risk Management Staff were to check further for patient discharge information elsewhere in the system after 05/17/13 and to send that information if available. As of 05/29/13 no information was found or received related to the patient's discharge summary. Failure by the staff to do a Discharge Summary renders the patient medical record incomplete.
