According to investigators, “the facility failed to notify the Physician and responsible party when there were changes in the resident’s condition.” The surveyor’s reviewed a resident’s 14-day MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment that revealed the resident “was in a persistent vegetative state was totally dependent on staff for activities of daily living, always incontinent of bowel and bladder, and was short of breath.”
The resident was receiving food through a tube and had “no weight loss and no pressure ulcers. However, the Communication Form from the facility revealed the facility had been notified that “the resident had open wounds on the right side of his neck” from medical conditions in a condition that “was saturated and filthy.”
When the resident received treatment, the resident did experience “facial grimacing while the facility cleaned the area.” A review of the Emergency Medical Services run sheet dated October 26, 2017, documented that the resident was “sent to the emergency room” for complications.
Notes from the emergency room documented that “the wound was described as being malodorous, on the posterior (back) neck area, was 12.0 cm in length and required glue to repair the area.”
The facility Director of Nursing “verified no treatment was initiated until October 26, 2018, when the resident was sent to the emergency room.” She also “verified on return to the facility, [the resident’s] Physician was notified but had no documentation that the resident’s responsible party had been notified of the new open area.”
The nursing home “failed to assess, notify the Physician or monitor a skin wound when it was reported by [the hospital].
This [deficient practice by the nursing staff] resulted in actual harm in the skin wound when untreated, worsened, developing into a Stage III pressure ulcer (open sore that extends into the tissue and deep into skin and may expose fat) and required emergency room intervention.”
