- Failure to Provide Residents Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Allow Existing Pressure Wound to Heal – citation #F314 date April 19, 2017
According to state surveyors, “it was determined the facility failed to provide continuous assessment of a pressure ulcer to ensure the adequate treatment to promote healing of pressure ulcers.” The resident was “admitted to the facility following a hospital stay for the repair of the left femur (thigh bone) fracture as a result of a fall at home.”
Additionally, the resident “had limited mobility due to non-weight-bearing status.” The orthopedic surgeon “ordered that the full leg immobilizer remain in place on the left leg and the resident” to remain non-weight-bearing on that leg.
The resident’s Periodic Assessments of the Resident’s Care Needs indicated the resident “was at risk for pressure ulcer development.” A review of the resident’s Skin Assessment revealed: “an open area on the left measuring 5.0 cm x 2.5 cm, palpate wound bed with a 1.0 cm x 1.0 cm scab at the center.” Documentation indicates that the wound was “related to the use of the left leg immobilizer.”
Over time, the resident’s pressure ulcer changed in size and was now described as “50% necrotic tissue (dead tissue), 25% slough (dead tissue), and 25% granulation tissue (new moist tissue that begins to fill in the wound) with scant drainage.”
The Physician’s Progress Note indicated “that the wound was unstageable and changed the wound treatment to a medicated ointment that assists in removing dead tissue with an absorptive dressing. The Physician stated in her note that the resident expressed concern about the healing of the wound.”
A subsequent Nursing Progress Note “revealed no documented evidence of the Physician was notified of a worsening of the wound” until six days later, “when the treatment [a debridement treatment) to the wound and treat as now unstageable.” The Director of Nursing confirmed the deficiencies found by the state investigators.
