- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date November 5, 2018
- Failure to Timely Report Suspected Abuse, Neglect or Theft and Report the Results of the Investigation to Proper Authorities – citation date November 5, 2018
The nursing home “failed to ensure pressure ulcer assessments were completed for [two residents].” One case involved a severely, cognitively impaired resident who did not walk. The assessment “documented the resident had one Stage III pressure ulcer and one unstageable pressure ulcer.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Electronic Medical Record that “did not document regular assessments of the resident pressure ulcers which included measurements and descriptions of the ulcer.” The Vice President of Operations reported “the lack of a consistent Director of Nursing [at the property] had affected the frequency and accuracy of wound documentation. She stated it is the responsibility of the Director of Nursing to do weekly wound assessments.” The Vice President reported that “she was not able to verify the facility had conducted a thorough wound assessment as it had not been documented consistently.”
According to investigators, “it was determined the facility failed to report an allegation of misappropriation to the Oklahoma State Department of Health no later than twenty-four hours after the allegation was made.” The documentation shows that “the Vice President of operations identified five allegations of misappropriation/abuse in last six months.”
Some of the findings were found in the Admission Assessment for a resident dated February 15, 2018, showing that the resident “was severely cognitively impaired and required supervision for most activities of daily living.” A notation showed that the resident had corrective glasses.”
During an interview with the resident, the resident “reported her glasses were taken off her face by a lady she did not recognize. The resident stated she had not seen her glasses since. She reported she had told the staff but didn’t remember who she told or when she told him. The resident stated, ‘I sure miss my glasses.’”
On October 29, 2018, the Social Services Director stated that “she had overheard the resident tell another resident someone took her glasses. The Social Services Director said she overheard the resident say the staff had looked for the glasses and they were not found.”
The Director indicated that “she was not sure how long the glasses had been missing [and] she did not report what she heard because she thought the staff already knew the resident’s glasses were missing.”
