- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date March 20, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure that care and services were provided to prevent the development of pressure ulcers and promote the healing of a pressure ulcer for [two residents].” This deficient practice did not prevent “the development of pressure ulcers [and the staff did not follow the] standard precautions to promote the healing of pressure ulcers.”
The investigation for a male resident in his 80s involved a medical record review that revealed that he had lived at the facility for eleven days. The resident had previously been hospitalized and “underwent surgical debridement and flap at another facility for wound care. He was transferred to the facility for further wound care and aggressive physical behavior.” The resident requires “IV antibiotics until the end of the month.”
The state surveyors interviewed the resident’s daughter, who stated “the first time she visited her father it was in the late afternoon. He was still in his pajamas and lying in stool.” A review of the electronic Nursing Admission Note revealed that the resident had “two skin abnormalities.”
One sore was a right ischial pressure wound (the postsurgical wound) that required a wound vac (vacuum). The second area was not an open wound but had bruising on the back to the right hand.
The resident’s most recent Skin and Wound Assessment indicated there was a pressure wound to the right buttocks that “was acquired externally, and it was not known how long it had been present.” There was “no evidence of infection” and the staff was educated to keep the resident clean and dry.
A subsequent MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment revealed that the resident had been admitted to the facility with two Stage II pressure ulcers and one stage IV pressure ulcer. The documentation shows that the resident was “at risk for further pressure ulcer development.”
During an interview with the facility Director of Nursing, it was confirmed that “if a resident is admitted to the facility with a pressure ulcer, he is at risk for further pressure ulcer development.” The Director stated that “the wound should not have happened and said that further education would be provided.”
