According to state investigators, “the facility did not inform the resident representative when [one resident] had an injury to her hand.” The resident “sustained a one-inch long wound to her left hand.”
The resident’s sister, “who is the resident’s representative, was not informed of this injury.” The state survey team received a complaint regarding the resident’s injuries on August 9, 2017. The complainant indicated that the resident “had a Band-Aid on her hand and [said that the resident] had caught her hand on the Hoyer lift.
The nursing home “did not ensure [two residents] with reportable incidents had a thorough investigation into the incidents and the incidents were reported timely and to the State agency.” The resident “sustained an injury of unknown origin and the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) did not immediately report the injury.”
A separate resident “had two resident-to-resident altercations that were not thoroughly investigated [nor] reported to the State agency.” That resident “had reported a missing [wrist] watch that was not thoroughly investigated and reported to the State agency.”
The facility “did not ensure residents receive pressure injury prevention interventions. This [failure] was observed with [two residents] at risk for pressure injury.” In one incident, the resident “did not receive a barrier cream to the buttocks after being incontinent [and another resident] did not receive pressure injury intervention to prevent a heel injury.”
The surveyors observed two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) providing toileting care using a ‘sit-to-stand’ lift to transport the resident to the toilet from their wheelchair. While the staff provided peri-care, there “was no barrier cream applied after urinary incontinence.”
A review of the resident’s Care Plan indicated that they were “at risk for pressure injury and “had no control over their bladder” making them susceptible for skin breakdown “related to impaired mobility and bowel and bladder incontinence.” The staff is instructed to provide a moisture barrier product to the perineal area when necessary.
The second resident had a right heel pressure injury that was unstageable. A review of that resident’s Care Plan shows that there were no interventions involving heel prevention.
