I cared for a pt this week who had stage III wound ( it was 4cm deep, MRSA positive, and horribly painful!). This pt was documented as "MR" and lived in a group home. According to my pt, the cause of this wound becoming so bad was that a nurse (LPN) who worked at the home "popped" it like a pimple, spreading the infection to the proximal area. Then they delayed treatment for two days -- a doctor advised them to take her to the hospital, but they waited. Is this something that should have been reported as abuse?
