- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date October 18, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that one resident was free from neglect.” Specifically, the facility “staff failed to provide daily pressure ulcer care for [seven days] as ordered by the Physician. Further, the facility staff failed to report the allegation of neglect to the appropriate agencies after learning of the neglect by staff.”
A review of the resident’s medical records indicated that the resident currently had a Stage III pressure ulcer.” However, the previous MDS (Minimum Data Set) assessment documented “that the resident did not have a pressure ulcer. This was incorrect as the pressure ulcer identified on July 9, 2018, was unstageable due to 100% eschar.”
Other documentation indicates that the resident had a right ankle wound as documented with “a full description on the right ankle wound. These documents continued weekly through the survey, and the last assessment received was October 17, 2018.” However, “no documents existed in the clinical record for the ankle wound on July 9, 2018, upon identification until the first document a formal assessment on September 29, 2018.”
The resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) assessment “also did not document any pressure ulcer for this resident.” The “allegation of neglect was made on December 18, 2018, to the nursing staff by a visitor [of the resident] as the wound dressing was found on that day (December 13, 2018) with the date of December 20, 2018, written on it.” It was noted that the “dressing to the resident’s ankle wound had not been changed in seven days and was infected.”
