- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date August 8, 2018
According to investigators, “the facility failed to ensure appropriate treatments were in place for [a resident], which resulted in the worsening of a pressure ulcer.” The surveyors observed the resident “in bed with his eyes open. The resident’s left foot was resting on the bed and not elevated” which did not follow the physician’s orders.
Approximately forty-five minutes later, the surveyor observed a “wound to the left outer heel” to be “a dark brown in color and measured 3.0 cm x 4.0 cm with no depth. The left-back heel was observed to be dark brown in color and measured 8.3 cm x 5.0 cm with no depth observed.”
The Unit Manager indicated that “the wounds were debrided (removal of tissue) on August 6, 2018.” Five days earlier, the Admission Observation Form indicated that “the resident had a Suspected Deep Tissue Injury of the left heel, which measured 8.0 cm in length by 3.5 cm in width and no depth, and a surgical wound to the front of the right thigh which measured 8.0 cm in length by 1.0 cm in width.”
The Physician order treatment was documented in the Medication Administration Record (MAR) to cleanse the left thigh wound and apply wound debridement solution and cover with dressing. However, a review of the MAR between June 11, 2018, and June 20, 2018, indicated six incidents where the treatment was not applied, put on hold, or the area in the documentation was left blank.
Additionally, “there was no documentation to indicate the treatment was completed between June 1, 2018, and June 27, 2018.” The surveyors interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) who indicated that the staff is to sign off on the Medication Administration Record and Treatment Administration Record “to show they have completed treatments.”
