- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date March 15, 2018
- Failure to Provide Safe and Appropriate Respiratory Care for a Resident When Needed – citation #F695 date March 15, 2018
According to state surveyors, “the facility failed to ensure staff implement interventions to prevent the development of an at-risk resident’s newly identify pressure ulcer. This [failure] resulted in actual harm when [the resident] developed an avoidable stage III pressure ulcer was slough (dead cell/tissue) to the wound.”
The surveyors documented that the facility “also failed to timely and accurately assess a new pressure ulcer area for a resident at risk for skin breakdown.” This failure affected two other residents “reviewed for skin breakdown.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure oxygen tanks were replaced when indicated.” The deficient practice by the nursing staff affected one resident “reviewed for respiratory care.”
A review of the resident’s Care Plan included impaired gas exchange because of medical conditions in a history of pneumonia. The documentation “indicated the resident requires the use of oxygen continuously as ordered and refuses that time and to monitor oxygen.”
The survey team observed the resident “sitting in the dining room in his Broda chair (reclining chair). The resident was observed to have his oxygen cannula in his nose. Observations of the oxygen tank revealed the oxygen was set at 2.0 L.”
However, “the amount of oxygen that remained in the tank, the needle was pointing to the red zone, that indicated to ‘refill.’” The surveyors interviewed the Licensed Nursing Home Administrator who confirmed that “the resident’s oxygen take was on the red and was in the red ‘refill’ zone.”
The facility’s Director of Nursing revealed that an oxygen tank would last up to 2.5 hours and voiced that the resident “had just recently gotten up and the oxygen tank was in the red zone.”
The Director of Nursing voiced that her expectation would be for [the nursing staff to check the oxygen when the resident was gotten up and would have been to change the oxygen tank.”
