- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse Including Physical and Sexual Assault, Physical Punishment, and Neglect by Anybody – citation #F600 date April for 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed for [one resident] to be free from neglect, requiring hospitalization for [a medical condition].” This deficient practice resulted in a “failure to assess and treat an acquired sacral wound, dehydration, amputation of the first and second toes on the right foot due to gangrene and bilateral ‘unable to stage’ pressure wounds on the heels resulting in harm.”
Documentation shows that the resident has a sacral wound and heel pressure wounds at the facility. These wounds “were not treated and the resident suffered dehydration from a lack of appropriate interventions, such as IV (intravenous fluids) or placement of the tube feeding resulting in harm.” Additionally, a second resident “acquired a Stage II sacral wound and did not receive treatment.”
The second resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment revealed the resident “requires extensive care with all activities of daily living such as bed mobility and toileting of one staff member.” A review of the resident’s Nurse’s Notes indicated that the resident suffered a 14.3% weight loss over the six-month period. The resident was to receive medication to increase calorie intake every day, and the facility was expected to monitor the resident’s weight per protocols.
However, in October 2017, the resident weighed 160 pounds. By February 7, 2018, the resident weighed 138 pounds. A review of the resident’s Care Plan dated December 6, 2017, revealed that “the Care Plan “did not address the resident’s potential for skin breakdown.”
Additionally, “there were no interventions for the prevention of pressure wounds. By March 2018, (after the development of the acquired pressure wound), the Care Plan had been updated to include interventions for prevention but was not updated to include the sacral wound or the wounds to the toes.”
The MDS Coordinator and Registered Nurse (RN) stated that there was no prevention in the Care Plan but only a Care Plan for pain. The RN “stated that the resident should be Care Planned for pressure ulcer prevention.”
