- Failure to Provide Residents Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Allow Existing Pressure Wound to Heal – citation #F314 date February 18, 2017
- Failure to Ensure the Nursing Home Area Remained Free of Accident Hazards and Risks and Provides Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F323 date February 18, 2017

The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure that treatments [were provided].” During the observation of the treatment of the resident’s two Stage II pressure ulcer sites, a Registered Nurse (RN) failed to follow protocols. The nurse did not clean one side at a time, or “perform handwashing between each dressing site, or clean, pat dry, and apply medication with the back and forth motion instead of starting from the inner to the outer.”
The state investigators determined that “these deficient practices had the potential for [the resident] to have a decline in the healing of two pressure ulcer sites from cross-contamination.”
The “facility failed to ensure that [one resident] was free from accidents and environmental hazards in the facility.” The investigators observed the resident “who had previous falls. The resident did not have a floor mat on the floor while in bed.” Additionally, an observation of the laundry room revealed that “there was a small personal radio hanging on a wire hanger above the sink.”
The nursing home “failed to provide the necessary care and services to [one resident], who developed a pressure ulcer/sore at the facility.” The nursing home failed to “implement the resident’s Plan of Care to reposition every two hours or as needed and offload (remove) pressure from the coccyx (tailbone).” The nursing home also failed to “include in the Plan of Care the [resident’s] preference to sit most of the day in the wheelchair and interventions to ensure offloading, reposition, and toileting.”
The nursing home also failed to refer the resident “to physical therapy for recommendations about posture and devices to address proper bodily alignment while in a wheelchair. As a result, [the resident], who was readmitted without pressure ulcers on September 25, 2018, developed, on October 21, 2018, a Stage II pressure ulcer to the coccyx.” By November 3, 2018, “the pressure sore deteriorated to a Stage III [sore and caused the resident] pain.”
