- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date November 16, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure the devices for pressure relief were in place as ordered by the Physician.” The nursing home also “failed to ensure the Physician order treatments for pressure ulcers were in place for [one resident].”
One incident involved a resident who “requires the extensive assistance of two persons for bed mobility and transfers and that she was at risk for developing pressure ulcers.” The resident’s Pressure Ulcer Risk Assessment indicated, “the resident was at high risk for developing pressure ulcers.”
The survey team observed the resident “sitting in a high-back wheelchair with leg rests in use, and she did not have a pillow in use under her legs.” A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) confirmed that the resident “did not have a pillow in use under her legs, and she was not aware if she was to have a pillow under her legs.”
However, the Quality Assurance Registered Nurse stated during an interview that the resident “should have had a pillow under her legs when out of bed.”
In a separate summary statement dated October 11, 2018, surveyors “determine that the Physician-order treatment for pressure ulcers were not completed as ordered for [one resident].” That resident’s Skin Evaluation Form revealed that “the resident had a Stage II (open, superficial) pressure injury (skin impairment caused by pressure) that measured 1.7 cm x 2.9 cm to the left heel and a wound bed was all red with a large amount of drainage.”
A subsequent Skin Evaluation Form revealed the wound “was now 1.0 cm x 2.0 cm, red and bleeding.” The third Skin Evaluation Form revealed, “that the left wound measured 2.0 cm x 3.5 cm, was read and purple, tendered to touch and bleeding.” The fourth Skin Evaluation Form revealed that the wound was 2.0 cm x 1.1 cm, red and brown and bleeding, and was tender to the touch.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s Treatment Administration Records that showed that “there was no documented evidence that the Physician’s order treatment to the left heel pressure ulcer was completed during the day shift [on numerous occasions over several months].” The Assistant Director of Nursing confirmed the lack of documented evidence that treatments were completed.
