- Failure to Provide Residents Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Allow Existing Pressure Wound to Heal – citation #F314 date June 6, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide care and services for the prevention of pressure ulcers for [a resident] who had a history of [bedsores].” The incident involved a cognitively intact resident who “requires extensive assistance with bed mobility, transfers, ambulation, toileting, and personal hygiene [and] was at risk for the development of pressure ulcers.”
The resident used “pressure reducing devices for the bed and chair.” When the surveyors reviewed the resident’s current Care Plan, it indicated that the resident “had potential/actual impairment of skin integrity related to thin skin, the use of blood thinners, and easily receives bruised areas.”
However, “there was no evidence in the Care Plan that the resident was at risk for pressure ulcers and no interventions developed for the prevention of pressure ulcers.” A review of the resident’s Weekly Skin Assessment Form revealed that the resident had a Stage II pressure ulcer measuring 1.0 cm x 0.8 cm on the right buttock.”
A Nursing Progress Note indicated that the resident “preferred to sleep in the chair to improve breathing due to [a medical condition] and the resident was educated related to the benefits of sleeping in bed to relieve pressure from the buttocks.” The documentation indicates that a family member of the resident “provided a foam pad for the chair.”
However, “there was no evidence the resident’s Care Plan was reviewed or revised to include interventions for the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers.” A subsequent Nursing Progress Note dated two weeks later revealed that the pressure ulcer on the right buttock “was healed.”
Documentation from two months later indicated that the resident “had two open areas on the right in her buttocks measuring 1.3 cm x 0.4 cm x 0.2 cm and the nursing staff was applying Dimethicone (a skin protectant cream) to the wound. Subsequent documentation shows that the resident had a dark purple colored area on the buttocks and “there was an open area observed the top of the rectal crease on the right in her buttock.”
The facility Director of Nursing “verified the purple discoloration of the resident’s buttock” was related to pressure and that “the foam padding in the resident’s recliner was not a pressure-relieving device.”
