Deciding to entrust the medical team at a nursing home to provide a loved one the highest level of care can never be easy. In some situations, Nurses and Nurse’s Aides will assure the family that they follow established standards of care when, in fact, that does not happen.

The state investigators determined the nursing home "neglected to assess and provide treatment for [a resident].” The investigation involved a resident who “received nutrition from a feeding tube and was dependent on supplemental oxygen.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Skin Assessment Form, dated June 15, 2017. The form revealed that “the resident had an area of reddened skin on the right heel. The form was not completed in the area intended for documentation of the size, type, and description of the wound.”
Ten days later, the Physician’s orders for the resident revealed that “wound care orders were initiated on June 25, 2017, for an unstageable pressure ulcer on the left heel.” Upon observation a few weeks later, “the wound on the resident’s left heel had pink and gray tissue and the wound was surrounded by dark and flaky skin.” The nurse who had completed the skin assessment for the resident a few weeks earlier stated, “she had marked the form incorrectly.” She said she “had not documented the description or the size of the area of the left heel.”
The “facility failed to follow their Abuse and Neglect Prohibition Policy in the area of training when they failed to train [three agency staff members] on their Abuse and Neglect Prohibition Policy.”
In one case, a Nurse Aide stated that she had worked at the facility for three weeks. The Aide “had not had any training on abuse or neglect when she came to the facility and [stated] she did not need any training. She added that if she witnessed abuse, she would report it to the scheduler at the facility.”
