The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to conduct initial and weekly wound assessments which included measurements and descriptions of the wound bed, tunneling, or undermining, possible necrosis/infection, drainage, odor, and pain.”
The investigation involved three residents “with pressure ulcers. No initial or weekly wound assessments were completed for [one resident’s] right heel ulcer from December 16, 2018, when it was identified until January 8, 2019, when a Quality Assurance Skin Review documented the sore.” The pressure wound measured 4.5 cm x 3.5 cm “to the resident’s right heel.” The ulcer had “purulent drainage.”
No initial or weekly pressure ulcer assessment, “which included measurements and descriptions of the wound bed, tunneling, or undermining, possible necrosis/infection, drainage, odor, and pain were completed for [a second resident] from November 28, 2018, when a blister opened on her right heel, through her discharge from the facility of February 7, 2018.”
Instead, the wound was discovered by Home Health Services that day. The pressure ulcer “was determined to be a Stage III pressure ulcer that measured 2.0 cm x 2.0 cm x 0.5 cm with drainage.”
The “facility failed to handle dirty linen in a sanitary manner by placing it on the floor.” The nursing home “also failed to handle dirty linen in a sanitary manner when a Nursing Assistant was observed carrying unbagged dirty linen against her chest down the hallway and into the dirty linen room.”
The Nursing Assistant had stated that “she just provided care to the resident and [that the] linens on the floor were the linens she had used.” A facility nurse stated that “dirty linens should be placed in a bag and thrown on the floor, [indicating that] plastic bags were always available for Nursing Assistants to put the dirty linens in.”
