- Failure to Provide Residents Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Allow Existing Pressure Wound to Heal – citation #F314 date February 13, 2017
According to surveyors, “the facility failed to obtain physician’s orders [involving a resident] reviewed with pressure ulcers.” The failure “resulted in actual harm to the resident. The wound increased in size.”
The survey team reviewed the resident’s Census and Condition of Resident’s Report dated August 19, 2016, that documented “three pressure ulcers.” A review of the resident’s Admission Order Sheet dated August 19, 2016 “did not document orders for wound care.”
However, that same day, the Interim Plan of Care documented numerous “opened areas involving pressure ulcers.” The following day, the Interdisciplinary Progress Note documented “full body exam of wounds, coccyx wound: pain, granulated tissue [measuring] 7.0 centimeters by 10.0 cm x 2.0 cm deep.
The resident’s August 25, 2016, Comprehensive Assessment noted that “he was admitted with one Stage IV pressure ulcer and one venous and arterial ulcer which was a diabetic ulcer.” The Director of Nursing reviewed the resident’s initial admissions orders and medical records and verified that “it looked like the first wound care orders were received on August 24, 2016,” which was five days after the resident’s admittance to the facility.
In a separate summary statement dated November 5, 2015, the nursing home “failed to provide wound care in a manner to prevent cross-contamination.” The survey team observed an LPN preparing for wound care. At that time, the LPN “washed her hands, applied a pair of gloves and close the door. The LPN removed the old dressing from the right outer ankle. Without changing her soiled gloves, she then cleaned the area with saline wound wash” and applied a gauze pad.
The LPN continued to provide wound care. Afterward, the surveyors inquired about when she went from a dirty to a clean field. The LPN stated, “Yes, I should have.”
The surveyors asked the LPN “if she should have washed her hands after she removed the old ankle dressing after she removed the old ankle dressing.” The LPN replied, “Yes, I should have, I will now. It is a bad habit I got into.”
