- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date May 23, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide care and treatment to prevent pressure ulcers for [one resident].” Due to “a delay of nine days for an assessment by a qualified Registered Nurse (RN), appropriate assessments, preventative measures, and monitoring were not put into place.”
It was determined that this failure “resulted in the harm to [a resident] who developed three pressure ulcers, one of which requires a higher level of care.” The state investigators observed a resident who said: “she got a big sore on her leg from a splint she had.” The resident indicated that “she had an area on her buttocks they were treating and also had an issue with her heel.”
The resident used a full leg immobilizer on the right leg that needed to be kept on at all times and only removed to receive services and care. The investigators reviewed a body skin assessment documented by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) when the resident was admitted to the facility, but there were no “documented pressure areas identified at that time.”
The Director of Health Services acknowledged that there were no pressure ulcers on the resident’s admission to the facility and “could not produce any documentation that the facility was offloading [the resident’s] right heel [as ordered], turning her, or checking on skin under the immobilizer from the time of the admission to when the Wound Nurse did her first assessment.
This assessment came nine days after the resident was admitted to the facility. The Director of Health Services “agreed that [the resident] was at high risk for the development of pressure ulcers [and] acknowledged the order said to remove the immobilizer for care and services.” The Administrator also acknowledged that “there was no RN assessment of the skin at the time of admission.”
The Vascular Specialists followed up on the resident’s injuries two months later and noted a wound that measured approximately 5.0 cm x 3.0 cm on the posterior calf area “with exposed muscle and tendon.” Documentation, as of May 1, 2019, indicated that the wound was now a life-threatening Stage IV decubitus ulcer.
