- Failure to Immediately Notify the Resident’s Doctor or Family Member of a Change in the Resident’s Condition – citation #580 date December 13, 2018
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date December 13, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure the Physician was notified of new pressure ulcers” involving one resident with a facility-acquired pressure ulcer. The facility “identified three residents who had facility-acquired pressure ulcers.”
In one case, the surveyors reviewed a resident’s Admission Assessment dated November 14, 2018, that shows that the cognitively intact resident “was at risk for pressure ulcers but had no unhealed pressure ulcers. The assessment documented a pressure-reducing device for the bed and surgical wound care was provided.”
A Nurse’s Note dated November 7, 2018, documented a wound “with no drainage. The note documented there were other open wounds.” A November 23, 2018, Nurse’s Note documented “skin prep was applied to the left great toe. There was no documentation to describe the appearance of the left great toe or the indication for the skin prep. There was no documentation to indicate the Physician had been notified or orders received for the use of the skin prep.”
A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) verified that there was no documented evidence of Physician notification.
The nursing home “failed to ensure interventions to aid in the prevention and healing of pressure ulcers were implemented [for two residents] who were reviewed for facility-acquired pressure ulcers.” In one incident, a Wound Evaluation Management Summary Sheet dated December 6, 2018, documented that a resident “had an unstageable deep tissue injury (DTI) which measured 1.2 cm x 1.0 centimeters by ‘not measurable.’ This [wound at that point] was at least thirteen days duration.”
The sheet “also documented an unstageable, due to necrosis [dead tissue], of the left posterior medial heel which measured 0.5 cm x 0.3 cm by ‘not measurable.’ Recommendations were for staff to offload the heels. This [wound] was at least thirteen days duration. There is no documentation the facility had addressed the recommendation to offload the wound.”
The surveyor stated that “there was no documentation in the clinical record to indicate preventative measures were in place to prevent the development of three unstageable pressure ulcers.” The Wound Care Nurse verified that “there was no documentation to indicate the wound had been offloaded.”
