- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date April 2, 2018
- Failure to Ensure That Nurses and Nurse’s Aides Have the Appropriate Competencies to Care for Every Resident in a Way That Maximizes Their Well-Being – citation #F726 date April 2, 2018
According to state investigators, it was determined an Immediate Jeopardy situation existed “related to the facility’s failure to have an effective system for the care of a resident with a pressure ulcer. The facility failed to implement medical interventions to promote the healing of pressure ulcers; conduct accurate and thorough pressure ulcer assessments, and ensure competent nursing staff to care for the resident with pressure ulcers.”
Documentation shows that the resident was admitted to the nursing home “with one Stage II pressure ulcer on the right buttock that measures 5.0 cm x 4.0 cm in the hospital records dated March 12, 2018.” The notation shows that the resident “was sent to the hospital” and upon arrival, “the resident was found to be in [deadly] septic shock, most likely from a stage IV sacral decubitus ulcer. The ulcer was found to measure 7.6 cm x 7.8 cm with the distal sacrum and proximal coccyx exposed.”
The doctors determined that the resident “subsequently required intravenous antibiotic treatment” for the septic shock.” The Oklahoma State Department of Health “verified the existence of an Immediate Jeopardy situation.”
Other documentation shows that the resident was admitted to the facility with “a Stage IV pressure ulcer to a sacrum. Treatment orders were obtained [on that day], but the nurse failed to code the order correctly, and the treatment” was not included in the “electronic Treatment Administration Record. Therefore, it was not documented as being completed.”
The nursing home failed “to have competent nursing staff to care for residents with pressure ulcers.” The investigation involved the incident documented above where the resident “was found to be in septic shock, most likely from a Stage IV sacral decubitus ulcer.”
The facility was notified of their failure “to have the competent nursing staff to care for a resident with pressure ulcers.”
