- Failure to Provide Residents Proper Treatment to Prevent the Development of New Bedsores or Allow Existing Pressure Wound to Heal – citation #F314 date October 6, 2017
- Failure to Ensure the Residents with Reduced Range of Motion Get Proper Treatment and Services to Increase the Range of Motion – citation #F318 date October 6, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure appropriate care and services were provided to prevent the development of a pressure ulcer for [one resident] reviewed for pressure ulcers.”
The state investigative team reviewed the facility’s Clinical Guidelines on treating wounds and skin issues. The overview indicated “to provide a system for identifying skin at risk, implementing individual interventions including evaluation of monitoring as indicated to promote skin health, healing, and decrease worsening of/prevention of pressure injury.”
A review of a resident’s medical records indicated that the patient had “developed a pressure ulcer on the right buttock while in the facility. The resident’s admission assessment indicated the resident was independent for bed mobility, ambulates with a walker, and uses a chair cushion.”
The Director of Nursing stated that the wound was identified on the day of discharge. The Director stated that “she wanted to keep the resident in the facility another few days to have the Wound Specialist evaluate and treat the wound, but the granddaughter refused and wanted to take her home.”
The Director stated that “possibly the resident did not want the Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) to clean under her breasts and her bottom and will look for CNA nursing documentation to that fact.” However, a skin evaluation done on the day of her discharge revealed that the resident had a Stage II pressure ulcer with no drainage measuring 1.1 cm x 1.1 cm.
The nursing home “failed to properly assess [one resident] reviewed for a range of motion.” This deficient practice was evidenced by the facility’s failure “to address a splint use for [a resident] who was observed with a left-hand contracture.”
The state surveyors observed the resident “in bed in his room [with] a severe left-hand contracture with the palm of the left-hand bent down to his left inner wrists.” The surveyors asked the resident, “if he wore a splint on his left hand.” The resident responded that “he did not think so.” The surveyors “did not observe any splint device in plain view of the resident’s room.”
