- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date July 16, 2018
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date August 29, 2018
The state investigative team determined that “the facility failed to identify an unavoidable pressure ulcer [before] being staged a Stage III and an unavoidable, unstageable ulcer.” The nursing home also “failed to provide a Physician-order treatment for [three residents] reviewed for pressure ulcer care and treatment.”
The investigators, along with the Director of Nursing, observed the resident “in bed. His bilateral heels were propped up on a pillow, and air boots were patent on both feet. His feet were observed. His left heel had an unstageable dried black area approximately 4.0 cm x 3.0 cm in size. The proximal area was peeling.” However, “the record lacked identification of the area to the left heel.” The Director of Nursing indicated during an interview that “she had no additional information to provide about [the resident’s] left heel.”
The facility “failed to use appropriate hand hygiene before, during, and after resident care for [one resident] observed for incontinence care.” The nursing home also “failed to store a nebulizer mask and oxygen tubing in a sanitary manner for [another resident] observed for respiratory care.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure a contaminated tubing and catheter drainage bag” remained uncontaminated for an individual observed for catheter care. A review of one resident’s Care Plan dated August 4, 2017, indicated that the resident “has a suprapubic urinary catheter (a catheter inserted into the bladder from a surgical opening just below the belly button). Interventions include, but were not limited to, change the catheter bag as needed and keep the drainage bag of the catheter off the floor.”
On August 28, 2018, at 2:42 PM, the resident “was observed lying on the floor in his room, the catheter bag and tubing was laying on the floor next to the resident.” The observers notified the Registered Nurse (RN) “of the resident’s status.”
