- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date February 19, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide the necessary care and services to prevent and treat a pressure ulcer and promote healing for [one resident].” Specifically, “the facility staff failed to identify a left heel pressure ulcer [before] it being found at an advanced stage.”
The pressure ulcer “was found to be unstageable with 100% eschar (hard black dead tissue). And, the facility failed to implement pressure-relieving devices as ordered by the Physician.”
The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment indicated that the resident “has a Stage I or greater pressure ulcer.” The document shows that the resident was at risk for developing pressure ulcers. Treatment indicated using a reducing device for the chair and bed, “nutrition or hydration interventions to manage skin problems, pressure ulcer care, and applications appointments/medications other than the feet.”
Within weeks, the resident’s Confidence of Care Plan showed the left heel became unstageable and was now a Stage II. The goal was to minimize the risk of infection and administer medications and monitor for effectiveness while floating heels as indicated while in bed.”
However, during an initial tour of the facility on February 12, 2019, just after noon, the resident was “observed in bed lying in a supine position with her heels positioned directly on the bed. The resident stated she has a sore on her left heel.”
The resident’s “pillow was observed sitting on top of her clothes basket, and her Prevalon boot was observed sitting on the seat of her wheelchair.” Approximately three hours later, “the resident’s heels remained directly on the bed. The pillow was still on top of the resident clothes basket, and the Prevalon boot remained on the seat of the resident’s wheelchair.”
