- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date July 12, 2018
- Failure to Provide Necessary Care and Services to Maintain the Resident’s Highest Well-Being – citation #F309 date November 16, 2017
According to investigators, the nursing home “failed to implement preventive measures to ensure the resident did not develop pressure ulcers.
Actual harm occurred to [the patient] when the resident developed one stage IV pressure ulcer.” to the coccyx and one deep tissue injury (purple or maroon color localized area, discolored intact skin or blood-fill blister due to damage of underlying soft tissue from pressure or shear) to his heel.”
A Stage IV bedsore is “full thickness tissue loss with exposed bone, tendon, or muscle. Slough or eschar may be present on some part of the wound bed.”
Documentation shows that the “facility identified to residents [currently living at the nursing home] who had in-house acquired pressure ulcers.” In one incident, the resident “was coded for a Stage IV pressure ulcer, and an unstageable pressure ulcer [that] were not present upon admission.
A review of the resident’s Pressure Ulcer Risk Assessment and Immediate Care Plan guided the nursing staff to “turn and reposition the resident every three to four hours as needed and add pressure-reducing devices as needed.” A subsequent Plan of Care revealed that the resident was to be turned and repositioned “every two hours, monitor the skin and report any signs of infection, wound size, and stage to the Physician and pressure reducing mattress to the bed and chair.”
However, a review of the resident’s medical records for the following two months revealed that no documented evidence wound “prevention interventions were implemented or if the resident refused wound prevention interventions.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure a resident was provided with psychiatric consult as ordered by the Physician.” During an interview with the Director of Nursing, it was revealed that the Social Service Designee was responsible “to arrange the psychological consult after the nursing department receives the order.”
A review of the social services records revealed that the psychiatrist had not seen the resident “for a psychological evaluation for medication review.”
