- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date May 24, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to assess and treat a blackened heel in a timely manner as requested by [the resident].” The deficient practice involved a cognitively intact resident at the facility whose Care Plan indicated she “was at risk for impaired skin integrity [with] no present skin breakdown.”
The surveyors interviewed the resident on May 21, 2018, who stated that “she was waiting on a nurse to inform her about her heel.” The resident stated that “she had got her toenails cut, and the doctor told her she had a black spot on her right heel.” The resident told the surveyors that “it went away, but it was back again.”
The resident said that “her right heel was hurting, and she had told a Nurse’s Aide while getting cleaned up about a week ago, but nothing was done.” The resident said that “she spoke with her daughter, and her daughter told her to tell the nurse.” The surveyors observed the resident’s right heel that had a “quarter-sized black spot.” A check of the resident’s Physician’s orders revealed “there was no documentation for the reason for the order.”
The survey team interviewed the Unit Manager, who stated that she was made aware of the resident “complaining of discoloration and pain to the right heel.” The Unit Manager said that the resident had informed her in passing and acknowledged that “there was no documentation regarding the reason for the order for the skin prep to [the resident’s] right heel or a podiatry consult.”
Additionally, “there was no documentation of the condition of [the resident’s] right heel.” The surveyors interviewed the resident’s daughter, who stated that when the resident “was discharged from the facility the last time, she had taken her to a podiatrist and was told it was a bedsore on her right heel. The daughter further stated it was being treated and cured.”
However, the daughter stated that the resident had said that the heel was hurting again and that “the black mark was back. The daughter stated she told her to tell the nurse.”
