- Failure to Honor the Resident’s Right to Request, Refuse or Discontinue Treatment or Formulate an Advance Directive – citation #F578 date December 19, 2018
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care to Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date July 31, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility did not ensure accurate advance directives according to the resident’s wishes.” The resident’s power of attorney for health care (POA) “signed advance directives for ‘do not resuscitate (DNR)’ despite the wishes of [the resident] to be resuscitated.” The resident “was not consulted before the decision to make him a DNR.”
An interview was conducted with the resident at 9:00 AM on December 17, 2018, who indicated that “in the hospital, they made him a DNR and at first he did not know what that meant.” The resident “indicated he could not believe it when he found out because he definitely wanted to be resuscitated if need be.”
The resident “indicated he thought that they had changed [his directive] at the facility because he spoke with his doctor and made sure he understood his wishes.” The resident “then indicated he could believe his daughter was trying to kill them.” The resident “indicated no one at the facility has ever asked him if he wanted to be resuscitated.”
The nursing home “did not ensure one of two residents reviewed for pressure injuries received necessary treatment and services.” The resident “had developed three pressure injuries to her feet due to a new pair of shoes.”
A facility Progress Note documents to encourage the resident “to wear shoes with an open back, slippers or gripper socks.” However, thirty days later, the resident “was observed wearing a pair of slippers on her feet [that were snug to the resident’s] feet leaving an indentation along her feet.”
Surveyors observed the resident’s right foot where the “slipper left an outline imprint around the back of the foot directly over the pressure injury. The facility did not ensure the relief of pressure to [the resident’s] right toe and heel.” The documentation shows that the pressure injury to the “resident’s right heel has increased in size.”
