- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date December 31, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home "failed to prevent and have preventative measures in place to prevent worsening of pressure ulcers (injury/areas of damage that can be caused by staying in one position for too long, which reduces blood flow to the area and causes the skin to die or develop a sore).” The resident “had a facility-acquired deep tissue injury (DTI – an injury under the intact skin due to prolonged, unrelieved pressure) or Pressure Injury to the left heel.”
The surveyors determined the facility failed to “ensure weekly skin assessments were done on December 17, 2018, and December 24, 2018, [according to] facility policies and procedures.” The nursing home also failed to “notify the Physician of the resident’s change in condition to the left foot pressure injury. The left foot was swollen.”
The facility failed to ensure the resident “was monitored on multiple days to relieve constant pressure on the left heel (offload the heals) as indicated in the Plan of Care.” The nursing home failed to “notify the Physician of the facility’s policy and procedures regarding treatment for [the resident’s injuries].”
The nursing home did not properly assess the resident’s skin “to reflect the resident’s pressure injury in the left heel and the facility failed to start preventative measures on admission.” Another resident, “with a deep tissue injury on the right heel, was treated with [medication] solution used to eliminate bacteria to prevent infection. These deficient practices put the residents at risk for further skin breakdown that could have been prevented.”
A review of one resident’s Care Plan indicated that “the wound should heal in thirty days with the following interventions: Assess skin every day and as needed, provide pressure-relieving services to bed and wheelchair; encourage weight shifting while in the chair.”
