- Failure to Provide Appropriate Treatment and Cares According to Orders, Resident’s Preferences and Goals – citation #F684 date September 25, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure [one resident] reviewed received treatment to a diabetic ulcer per Physician’s orders.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff “resulted in worsening of the diabetic ulcer.”
The survey team interviewed the resident who stated that “his right foot was hurting, and the staff had not done the treatment to his foot all weekend.” The resident stated that “he did not want to lose his leg as he had lost his left leg above the knee due to a non-healing wound.”
The resident said that “they are not going to remove this leg like they did the last one. The resident had a distraught look on his face, and his voice had a tremulous quality.” The investigators reviewed the resident’s Treatment Administration Record that indicated the “treatment was not done on the 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM shift. The only documentation of the treatment being done was on September 21, 2018” which was three days earlier.
The surveyors interviewed a nurse who indicated “at the treatment was not documented in the Treatment Administration Record, it probably had not been done. When queried regarding the Skilled Nurse Note dated September 22, 2018, referring to the Wound Treatment beingdone, “the nurse” indicated she could not validate the treatment had been completed according to Physician’s orders.”
The surveyors observed the resident’s right foot on September 24, 2018, at 9:30 PM when “the resident was up in his wheelchair in the hallway.” The dressing “was soaked in dried brown color drainage. The gauze on the ‘undated’ dressing had rolled edges and was loose.”
The Director of Nursing “was asked about the resident’s treatment order and the concern of the treatment not being done since September 21, 2018.” The Director “gathered the treatment supplies and proceeded to remove the dressing from the resident’s right foot. Observations of the dressing indicated it was bunched together, had rolled edges, was loose, and had a moderate amount of brown drainage and a foul odor.”
