According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to assess a pressure ulcer for [one resident] reviewed for pressure ulcers.” A wound note dated October 21, 2016 “indicated the wound measured 2.8 cm in length, 4.0 cm and with, and 0.3 cm and depth.”
The surveyors interviewed the Director of Health Services who indicated that “there were no measurements for the resident’s pressure ulcer for November.” The individual indicated “the Wound Nurse was no longer employed at the facility, and the new Unit Manager/Wound Nurse just started last week.”
An LPN stated during an interview that while performing wound care, they “did not measure the wound.” Without measurement, there is no way to know if the wound is healing or worsening.
The facility “failed to ensure appropriate footwear was in place, in accordance with the Care Plan to prevent accidents for [three residents].” In one case, a resident’s Care Plan indicated that the resident required “proper fitting non-skid footwear.”
However, during observations on December 11, 2017, the resident “was sitting in a chair, wearing socks without a non-skid bottom.” When asked, the Unit Manager indicated that the resident “should have non-skid footwear on her feet.” The Director of Nursing stated that “the resident was to have non-skid footwear on her feet.”
The facility “failed to handle clean and soiled linens and clothes according to the facility policy.” The facility “failed to administer medication using infection control practices for [one resident] observed for medication administration.”
The nursing home “failed to store respiratory equipment appropriately [for two residents] and failed to ensure [two employees] receive their annual TB screening.” The nursing home “failed to establish and implement a standard precaution and infection control monitoring program. This deficient practice had the potential to affect [all fifty-four] residents residing in the building.”
The Director of Nursing “indicated that the facility did not currently have a program in place to assess and monitor the infection control policies, including the implementation of standard precautions in the facility.”
