Give residents proper treatment to prevent new bed (pressure) sores or heal existing bed sores
Level of harm – Actual harm
Based on observation, record review and interview, the facility failed to ensure a system was in place to assure thorough skin assessments and prompt identification of new areas of skin breakdown for residents at risk for the development of pressure sores to prevent delays in treatment and failed to ensure pressure relieving devices were used to prevent further skin breakdown for 1 (Resident #1) of 3 (Residents #1, #2 and #4) case mix residents who were at risk for the development of pressure sores. This failed practice resulted in a pattern of actual harm for Resident #1 who experienced deterioration of his right heel resulting in infection and hospitalization and had the potential to cause more than minimal harm for 20 residents who were at risk for skin breakdown
