- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date May 25, 2017
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date June 28, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow infection control procedures consistent with currently accepted practices.” It was determined that “inadequate infection control practices put all residents at risk for the spread of infection.”
The surveyors observed two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) in a resident’s room who “was on contact precautions for Clostridium difficile (C-diff, an easily transmitted infection in the resident’s stool).” One staff member stated that she “forgot to wash her hands when she left the room.”
The Registered Nurse (RN) was observed “administering medications to [the resident] while touching [the resident’s] tray table, handing the medication cup, and taking the empty cup back without wearing any personal protective equipment (PPE).”
The RN “left the room without washing her hands, threw the cups away on her medication cart, entered the room again, and dumped some liquid into [the resident’s] sink.”
The surveyors say that “she left the room again without washing her hands and entered [with] her medication cart to remove a piece of equipment. She then entered [another resident’s] room without washing her hands.”
The facility “failed to handle clean laundry in a sanitary manner to prevent contamination. The facility failed to consistently implement transmission-based precautions and limit the movement of [one resident] with a highly infectious disease.”
It was determined that “the facility failed to maintain infection control prevention during catheter care [for another resident and] failed to ensure [an agency nurse] administered medications [to] prevent cross-contamination and failed to ensure staff washed their hands when appropriate after direct contact with the [highly contagious] [resident] or contaminated personal items.”
