  • Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date March 23, 2018
  • The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to identify that [one resident] had a Stage II pressure ulcer on the right buttock and failed to ensure pressure ulcer treatment was consistently provided [to another resident].” The state investigators reviewed the cognitively intact resident’s Care Plan to determine that the patient “was at risk for pressure ulcer development related to decreased mobility, deconditioning, and a co-morbid health condition.”

    The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the patient was “incontinent of bowel and bladder and was at risk for developing pressure ulcers and had one unhealed unstageable pressure sore.” The Physician had provided an order to cleanse and treat the resident’s bedsore and that the “Wound Nurse was continuing with treatments.”

    The resident’s Weekly Evaluation Note indicated a red area on her bottom and that the resident was tolerating being turned frequently. The surveyors interviewed the resident who stated: “she had an open sore on her bottom.” Approximately one hour later, the Wound Care Nurse [a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)] was interviewed and stated that the same resident “did not have an open area on her buttocks.”

    To follow up on the interview, the surveyors observed the wound care conducted by the LPN and observed the resident to “have an open area to the right buttocks. The wound bed was beefy red, with a small area of yellow tissue and had a small amount of reddish/brownish drainage.”

    The LPN stated that “the resident had a Stage III wound on the right buttock, which had not been reported to her.” The LPN stated that “there was no documentation of this wound and there were no Physician’s orders to care for it.”

    The Licensed Practical Nurse stated that had she been notified of the skin breakdown, “she would assess the wound, notify the Physician, and obtain treatment orders.” She stated that “the nurses had documented the resident had redness on her buttocks” but “they did not notify her. She stated that the nursing staff is supposed to let her know of any changes in the resident’s skin so that she can obtain timely treatment orders.”

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
