- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date December 13, 2018
- Failure to Develop and Implement a Program That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading – citation #F441 date August 25, 2016
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure a resident received care and services to prevent the development of a pressure ulcer and to promote healing of an existing pressure ulcer.” The surveyors reviewed a resident’s Skin and Wound Total Body Assessment and Annual Assessment dated September 12, 2018, that shows the cognitively intact resident “had no pressure ulcer.”
The investigators interviewed the resident on December 10, 2018, who stated that “she had a sore on her bottom near her crack. She stated the staff had given her salve to put on the wound [saying that] staff would come and check the wound if she asked them.”
The survey team interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and asked, “if he was aware the resident had a wound on her bottom.” The LPN replied that “he was not aware.” The LPN then went to the resident, checked the wound, and applied the treatment. The surveyors asked the resident “if she had reported it to anyone.” The resident replied that “she had reported it to [another LPN].” When that LPN was asked, she verified that she had not been made aware of the wound on the resident’s bottom.
The survey team asked the Director of Nursing about the resident’s wound. The Director stated that “she had done the resident’s assessment [a few days earlier] and she had not noticed any skin issues. She stated she looked at the wound yesterday after it had been brought to her attention [and said that] there was a scabbed area but nothing open at this time.”
The nursing home “failed to maintain infection control by failing to ensure oxygen tubing was changed timely [for a resident] who used oxygen. The Director of Nursing identified ten residents residing in the facility who used oxygen.”
Additionally, the nursing home failed to “sanitize the glucometer between fingerstick blood sample checks for [three residents].” The MDS Coordinator “identified nineteen residents residing in the facility who received fingerstick blood sample checks.” Also, the facility “failed to wash/sanitize their hands between residents during medication administration.
The state surveyors asked the Director of Nursing “what she had instructed the staff to do to prevent cross-contamination during medication administration.” The Director stated that “staff should be washing their hands or using hand sanitizer between each resident [and] should not place any items on any surface in the resident’s room without a barrier.”
