- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date February 2, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date April 19, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to treat a pressure ulcer [by] professional standards by failing to obtain orders and begin treatment upon admission.” The nursing home failed “to provide consistent treatments for existing pressure ulcers for [one resident].”
The investigative team reviewed the resident’s Wound Assessment that revealed that the patient had been admitted to the facility with a “Stage III pressure wound on the coccyx that measured 2.0 cm x 2.0 cm and had a 0.2 cm depth.” The resident also had “an unstageable pressure wound on the left heel that measured 2.0 cm x 1.0 cm and had a depth that was unable to be determined due to the presence of eschar [dead tissue] on the wound.”
The resident’s Care Plan to treat the pressure ulcers included interventions involving a low air loss mattress, the staff to float heels, and staff to follow facility policies for the prevention and treatment of bedsores.
The facility “failed to ensure [three staff members] had evidence of freedom from [infectious tuberculosis].” It was determined that “the deficient practice could result in potential exposure of infectious tuberculosis.”
While the review of the personnel records for a staff member and housekeeping indicated skin tests for tuberculosis had been performed, “the form did not indicate whether the skin test results were positive or negative.”
Next, the investigators reviewed the personnel record for a Registered Nurse (RN) who was a full-time employee. The employee file had a form indicating that a tuberculosis contest had been performed. However, “the form did not indicate whether the skin test results were positive or negative.”
The Director of Nursing stated that “she was responsible for maintaining employee files [and] the facility’s policy was for staff to provide evidence of freedom of tuberculosis upon hire and annual thereafter. She also stated she kept a spreadsheet to track the due date for the staff members to submit renewals of their tuberculosis testing document.”
The three employee files that had been reviewed all had expired test results, and any follow-up testing did not provide the results to indicate whether they were positive or negative for the highly infectious disease.
