- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date February 27, 2018

According to state investigators, “the facility failed to provide a pressure-relieving cushion as ordered and to obtain treatment orders for a pressure ulcer.” A review of the resident’s Quarterly Assessment dated October 3, 2017, shows that the severely, cognitively impaired resident was “at risk of developing pressure ulcers.”
A resident’s Nurse’s Notes dated February 14, 2018, in the early morning noted that there was a “dime size open area noted to the elder’s coccyx.” Thirty-five minutes later at 7:30 AM, the surveyors observed the resident “seated in a high back wheelchair slightly reclined. At 9:30 AM, staff members were observed transferring the resident to the bed. There was no pressure-relieving cushion observed in the resident’s wheelchair.”
By 10:30 AM, the surveyors asked the Administrator and Director of Nursing “where notification to the Physician and family would be documented. Both stated in the Physician’s books and Nurse’s Notes.”
The surveyors asked the Administrator and Director of Nursing to “locate a notification on February 14, 2018, for the new wound. The Director of Nursing was observed looking at the resident’s Electronic Medical Record. She stated the record documented the Wound Nurse had been notified.”
The Administrator reviewed the Physician’s books but “found no notification. They were asked where to locate any new Physician’s orders.” Both the Director and the Administrator stated that “they should be an Electronic Medical Record” but were not there.
The state surveyors determined “an Immediate Jeopardy situation existed related to the facility’s failure to ensure hazardous chemicals are securely stored out of the reach of residents.” The residents were exposed to the chemicals in “the central bathing room, the medication cart, the soiled linen workroom located on Hall 300, the janitor’s closet, and restorative room located on Hall 400, and in the kitchenettes on Hall 300 and Hall 400.”
The surveyors asked the Assistant Director of Nursing “if the janitor’s closet located on Hall 400 should be locked. She stated the door should always be locked.”
The surveyors asked the Assistant Director “how many residents were wanderers. She stated there is a book at the front desk” recognized as the elopement risk book, “which contained [a list of] seven residents.”
