Open Ground in outlet

I recently purchased a socket tester and upon testing an outlet, it shows Open Ground.

Is this a problem? There are two other outlets on this wall, one on either side of the issue outlet approximately 4' from one another, and both test 'correct' ground.

Yes. Pull the outlet and check the ground connection.
