According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure the Physician order treatment/dressings were completed for [the resident’s] sacral pressure ulcer.” Actual harm occurred to the resident’s “Stage II sacral pressure ulcer” when the staff failed to monitor and treat the wound as ordered by the Physician.
This negligence resulted “in a declined to an unstageable pressure ulcer” that could threaten the life of the resident.
Documentation shows that the resident was “at risk for developing a pressure ulcer.” Weekly Wound Assessments between July 10, 2017, and July 21, 2017, show that the pressure ulcer had progressed “to an unstageable pressure ulcer there was no 4.0 cm x 5.0 cm. The debt was not measured since the base of the wound was not visible.”
Documentation shows that the wound bed “was completely covered with necrotic [dead] tissue and moderate serous drainage was recorded.” Ten days later, the unstageable pressure ulcer to the sacral area had increased in size and appeared pink and necrotic with “moderate serous drainage. The ulcer bed was assessed to have 60% subcutaneous tissue visible, and another 40% was necrotic tissue.”
