- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date February 24, 2016
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to implement interventions and provide assistance devices to prevent further skin tears and injuries for [one resident].” As a result, the resident “sustained a skin tear while self-propelling in his wheelchair.”
The “facility staff failed to implement interventions and failed to provide [the resident] with gloves to prevent further skin tears and injury.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Nurse’s Notes showing that the resident “sustained a skin tear to the right hand, specifically the second finger after self-propelling himself around the facility. The nursing staff cleansed the area and applied antibiotic ointment.”
Six days later, a subsequent Nurse’s Note indicated the resident had a skin alteration to the third right-hand finger. However, Physical Therapy did not provide gloves for the patient at this time.”
The survey team interviewed the injured resident and asked about the incident. The resident “showed the surveyor the inside portion of his right hand [that] contained two healed lesions, one on the third finger and one on the second finger of his right hand.”
The resident stated that “he hurt his hand while wheeling himself in his wheelchair. When asked if the facility therapy staff had been requested to evaluate him for the use of gloves, he stated: ‘Yes, but they said they could not do it. I know I should have been more forceful about it. I still think I need them, and they would do me good.’”
The resident stated, “But it is my fault. I should have been more forceful to ask them about it. I do not want to cut my hands anymore. I did not even know I was hurt the first time until I saw the blood running down my hands. But I am alright now.”
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) was interviewed regarding the skin tears and interventions necessary to “prevent further occurrences. She stated: ‘When a resident gets a skin tear, the nurse is responsible for updating the Care Plan. This [updating] would include any interventions to keep it from happening again. It might be Geri-sleeves or some other kind of protective device.”
The LPN verified that “it did not look like they did [anything] to protect him.”
