According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure that residents receive necessary treatment and services consistent with professional standards of practice to promote healing and prevent infection of a pressure ulcer.”
The resident was diagnosed with a pressure ulcer and received a Physician’s orders for treatment, including covering the sore “with the dry dressing on [each] Day Shift.” However, upon observation of the dressing change on the pressure ulcer on the right buttocks, “there was no dressing on the pressure ulcer for [the Registered Nurse (RN)] to remove.”
The RN “confirmed that the pressure ulcer had no dressing.” The Director of Nursing stated that “she was unsure whether there was not a dressing on [the resident’s] pressure ulcer.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure that each resident received adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents.”
A review of the resident’s Current Care Plan revealed: “a focus area of potential for falls related to ambulatory dysfunction, diuretic, poor vision, dementia, attempts to self-transfer to the wheelchair, toilet, or shower chair without assistance.”
The surveyors observed a door guard alarm that makes a sound “when a door window was opened.” The alarm was installed on the upper right corner of the resident’s bathroom door.
However, “the alarm did not sound of the door was open.” The Director of Nursing confirmed that “the door guard alarm on the door was an active intervention in place to prevent falls and should have been turned on.” A follow-up observation of the resident’s bathroom door at a later date revealed: “that the door guard alarm on the resident’s bathroom door was not turned on, and it did not sound when the door was opened.”
The facility “failed to ensure residents were free from unnecessary medications.” The incident involved a resident who had been admitted to the facility on hospice services for respite stay (one hospice resident goes to a facility for [some time] so the usual caregiver can rest).”
The resident’s admissions orders documented that the resident was receiving medication for nausea and vomiting. However, the resident’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) and corresponding Nurse’s Notes “revealed no notes that the resident was experiencing nausea or vomiting on those dates” that the medication was being administered.
