- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date January 25, 2019
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date January 25, 2019
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide necessary care and services consistent with national standards of practice to promote the prevention of pressure ulcer/injury development. The facility failed to ensure a resident’s skin integrity was maintained during wound care.”
It was determined that “this practice had the potential to affect more than a limited number of residents.” The surveyors reviewed a resident’s medical records who “has a history of recurring pressure ulcers in the same area of the lower back.” Currently, the resident “had a healing in-house-acquired stage III pressure ulcer located over the spinal bony prominence of the lower back.”
The records indicate that the resident has a limited range of motion and is “always incontinent of both bowel and bladder.” The resident “weighs 92 pounds.” The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Physician’s orders to apply dressings to the middle and upper spine.”
During an observation of wound care over the pressure ulcer conducted by a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), it was revealed that there was “no breach in infection control principles. However, [the LPN] when applying the dressing to the skin on the lower spine created a significant skin fold under the adhesive border of the dressing.”
The resident’s “skin is very loose and hanging. When [the LPN] was applying the adhesive border of the dressing, approximately one inch of skin pinched up and fold-over other skin and was trapped under the adhesive border. This created a skin fold that formed an area of high risk for skin breakdown, particular from pressure if the resident was to lie on the skinfolds for any length of time.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure the environment was as free from accident hazards as possible over which the facility had control.” The investigation involved a resident who was “totally dependent on staff for bed mobility and transfers” and received daily anticoagulant medication.
The surveyors observed the resident on the afternoon of January 24, 2019, while “lying in bed. The call bell was not visible.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) “agreed that the call bell should be within his reach at all times.”
