- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date April 13, 2018
The state investigators determined “the facility failed to prevent an avoidable pressure ulcer (injury to the skin or tissue over a bony area of the body) from developing for [one resident] reviewed for pressure ulcer care. The facility failed to conduct skin assessments according to [the resident’s] Plan of Care and did not discover the pressure ulcer until it was unstageable (full-thickness skin and tissue loss].”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s Nursing Progress Note indicating that on February 12, 2018, at 9:20 PM, the nursing staff performed a skin check. However, “no skin injury/wounds were noted.”
On March 10, 2018, at 6:59 PM, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “reported to the writer a sore to the left lateral (side) leg of [the resident] caused by a wheelchair leg rest.” The nursing staff obtained orders and provided the resident wound care.”
At that time, the wound measured 6.0 cm x 4.0 centimeters and had eschar to the wound bed and some redness to the peri-wound (skin tissue surrounding the wound).” Twelve days later, the resident “refused to let the nurse measure his wounds; he stated it hurts too much.”
Documentation dated April 10, 2018, shows that “wound care was performed and documented in the Treatment Administration Record (TAR) on the resident’s left lower extremity.” At that time, the wound was unstageable, and there was serosanguineous (yellowish fluid with small amounts of blood) drainage. The surrounding tissue was inflamed.”
A review of the resident’s March 30, 2018, Care Plan indicated that the resident “was at risk for skin breakdown as evidenced by limited mobility.” Three interventions on the Care Plan included “evaluate for skin risk factors per protocol, monitor skin for signs and symptoms of skin breakdown; and observe skin conditions with activities of daily living and report abnormalities.”
However, there were no Weekly Skin Integrity Sheets filled out on[the resident until a pressure ulcer was discovered.” The Director of Nursing stated that the resident had received a “new leg rest during this time period, and they believe that that is what caused the pressure ulcer.”
