- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date May 10, 2018
- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date May 10, 2018
According to state investigators, “the facility failed to ensure services and treatment provided [consistently] promote healing and prevent new ulcers from developing.” The survey team reviewed the resident’s Care Plan dated September 5, 2017, that documented the resident “was at risk for skin breakdown related to immobility and incontinence. Interventions include the staff to inspect the resident’s skin on shower days and to report any changes to the Charge Nurse.”
The incident report dated February 5, 2018, noted that the resident “was observed to have a scab on her right lower leg and a soft spot on her left heel, which had intact skin.” By March 3, 2018, during a fourteen-day assessment, it was noted that the resident “had a skin tear and moisture associated skin damage (MASD).”
The resident’s thirty-day assessment dated March 19, 2018, noted that the resident “had moisture associated skin damage. The assessment documented the resident was severely impaired, and [their] cognition exhibited mild symptoms of depression and required assistance with activities of daily living. The assessment documented the resident had no pressure ulcer or status ulcers.”
However, the resident’s Weekly Wound Assessments in the Treatment Administration Record documented “measurements for the right lower leg deletion from February 24, 2018, through April 30, 2018. The right leg ulcer was documented as healed on May 5, 2018.” While there was a “resident’s clinical record to obtain treatment orders and wound measurements for the right lower leg deletion, [there were] no measurements for the left heel.”
The investigators interviewed the Administrator in training who “was informed that the resident’s left heel wound was not monitored, the right lower leg deletion was documented as healed when it continues to have a scab, and a lack of documentation about all care and assessments in general.” The Administrator in training reported changes would be made.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure an environment free of accident hazards, and residents were provided with supervision to prevent accidents.” The surveyors documented “two open areas at the end of the West Hall” that were “divided by a partition wall and observed to contain bed frame, wheelchairs, dressers, tables, chairs, boxes, lift, and a scale.”
At that time, an unidentified resident “was observed to ambulate with a walker to pass by the open areas but did not enter the areas.” Later that afternoon, another resident “wheeled to the surveyor’s’ workroom door and spoke with the surveyors.” Immediately afterward, the resident “was observed, in her wheelchair, at the entry to the right open area. The resident was opening the door to the movable closet and was bending over to look into the closet.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that this resident wandered and was at risk for accidents.
