According to investigators, the facility “failed to follow infection control protocols for proper handwashing technique during wound care. This deficient practice was identified [for a resident] observed for wound care, and one nurse observed during wound care.”
The survey team observed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) washing her hands at six different times while “touching the faucet with her bare hands and thereby causing cross-contamination.”
The “facility failed to develop a person-centered comprehensive Care Plan to address the resident’s medical, physical, mental and psychosocial needs. This deficient practice was identified for [one resident].”
The survey team observed the resident sitting in a wheelchair with “both of the resident’s hands contracted.” The resident “was not able to open his fingers on either hand. There were no hand rolls, palm guards, or other devices in the resident’s hands.”
A review of the resident’s MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment Tool indicated that the resident was wheelchair-bound, legally blind, cognitively intact, and “requires maximum assistance of two staff members for transfers.” A review of the resident’s Care Plan showed that there was only documentation for “Nutrition Care Plan for weight reduction.”
The survey team stated that “the Care Plan did not address the resident’s right and left-hand contractures.” During an interview with a Registered Nurse (RN)/Unit Manager, it was revealed that “there were no other care plans available for [that resident]” to help with the resident’s hand contractures.
