According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure pressure ulcer interventions were implemented for [one resident] reviewed for quality of care.” The survey team observed the resident lying in bed during a tour of the facility. The resident “complained of pain and of her mattress being uncomfortable.” The state survey team looked at the mattress pump at the foot of the bed “which was not operating.”
The survey team asked the resident’s permission to touch the mattress that was observed to be low on air “with the bed frame able to be felt through the mattress.” At that time, a State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) deliver the resident’s “breakfast and verify the mattress was not properly inflated and discovered it was unplugged.”
The resident stated that “her discomfort on the mattress began around 7:00 AM” or about 1.5 hours earlier. The state survey team reviewed the resident’s medical records and Plan of Care that revealed a Stage I pressure ulcer to the coccyx. The documentation indicated the resident “had the potential for alteration and skin integrity related to bowel incontinence and decreased mobility. Interventions include using a pressure reducing mattress on the bed to promote comfort and prevent skin breakdown.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure [one resident] reviewed for quality of care had fall interventions implemented.” A review of the resident’s Fall Risk Evaluation indicated that the resident “was at high risk for falls. Risk factors included [disorientating] a person, place, and time at all times, a history of three or more falls in the past three months.” The resident “was chair bound and had balance problems while standing or walking.”
During the investigation, the resident “was observed being assisted to a standing position by the Director of Nursing and an unidentified female staff member. There was no Dycem [non-slip pad] in the resident’s wheelchair.” The female staff member assisting the resident in standing stated that the non-slid pad “was also removed from the chair the other day. This deficiency substantiates Complaint Number OH 298.”
