- Failure to Make Sure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Meet Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F281 date June 29, 2017
- Failure to Develop, Implement and Enforce a Program That Investigates, Controls and Keeps Infection from Spreading – citation #F441 date June 29, 2017
The investigators determined that “the facility failed to provide services that met professional standards for [one resident] reviewed for standards of care.” Specifically, a Licensed Vocational Nurse “did not wash her hands for twenty seconds [as required by procedures and protocols after providing] suprapubic care for [a resident].”
The deficient practice “could compromise the two residents with ostomies and residents with urinary catheters by placing them at risk for infection.” In one incident, a resident’s Care Plan revealed that the resident “has a urinary catheter (suprapubic).” The Care Plan indicated that the resident is “at risk of developing urinary tract infections due to a suprapubic catheter. The resident will have no signs or symptoms of urinary tract infection through the next review date.”
The document indicates that while providing catheter care on every shift and as needed, the nursing staff will use soap and water to eliminate the risk of infection. The survey team observed a Licensed Vocational Nurse providing care to the resident. The nurse “donned a clean pair of gloves, removed [the resident’s] ostomy wafer and bag, exposing [the resident’s stoma that] had a moderate amount of feces on the stoma.”
The “LPN doffed [removed] her soiled gloves and washed her hands with soap and water for eleven seconds [before donning a clean pair of gloves and washing the resident’s] suprapubic catheter using soap and water.” The Licensed Vocational Nurse then “doffed soiled gloves and washed her hands for eight seconds with soap and water.” During an interview with the Licensed Vocational Nurse, the nurse said that “handwashing should be performed in between glove changes and handwashing should be performed for at least twenty seconds to prevent passing bacteria to other residents.”
The nursing home “failed to establish and maintain an Infection Prevention and Control Program designed to help prevent the standard and transmission-based precautions to be followed to prevent the spread of infection or diseases.” The investigation involved residents “observed receiving incontinence care, colostomy care, and urinary catheter care.”
In one incident, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “did not wash her hands in between glove changes when providing [the resident’s] incontinent care.”
