- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date October 18, 2018
- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date February 2, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] reviewed for pressure ulcers received the necessary treatment and services to prevent new ulcers from developing.”
The resident “developed a pressure ulcer on her sacrum after admission to the facility. This failure could place all residents at risk for pressure ulcers and those the develop pressure ulcers at risk for new in worsening wounds.”
The investigative team reviewed the resident’s Nurse and Admit Re-Admit data collection That Form dated May 11, 2018 indicating that the resident “had redness on her sacrum.” The resident’s Wound Registered Nurse Assessment Form dated May 11, 2018 documented “a non-pressure wound on the left rear leg. There was no documentation of the redness on her sacrum.”
A subsequent note indicated a Deep Tissue Injury on the sacrum, on the rear of the left lower leg, and on the great toe. There “was no documentation at the sacrum was blanchable or not.”
The facility “failed to maintain an infection control program designed to prevent the development and transmission of disease and infection.” The investigation involved one resident with a CPAP machine (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) who used a nebulizer.
Observations were made of a resident’s room that revealed “the tubing for the nebulizer machine was on top of the floor mat, a urinal was hanging on the side of the trash can, or torn floor mat on the side of the resident’s bed, and crash cards had dusty, dirty, lint, and dried White stains.”
In a different room, a CPAP mask “was dirty and was lying on top of the machine without being covered. These failures could place to residents on the CPAP machine, fifteen residents on the oxygen treatment, ten residents and nebulizers, and there were two crash cards and the medication room that could all place risk of exposure to infectious diseases.”
