- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date April 5, 2018
- Failure to Provide Care for Residents in a Way That Keeps or Builds Each Resident’s Dignity and Respect of Individuality – citation #F241 date September 2, 2016
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to maintain an infection control program for all infections, including influenza for [three residents], and scabies for [two other residents].” The surveyors determined that “this practice could potentially affect all 113 residents currently living in the facility.”
The investigators interviewed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) on the morning of April 5, 2018. The LPN stated that “the flu outbreak occurred at the facility and a lot of people became ill with cold/flulike symptoms; both residents and staff.”
The LPN stated that “if one resident came down with the flu-like symptoms, the facility would isolate the resident and remove the roommate if the roommate did not have symptoms.” The LPN said, “that they did keep a private room open for residents in cases like this.”
However, the Administrator stated during an interview that “the facility did not have the flu outbreak during the current flu season. She stated one or two people had cold symptoms; however, no one had [the flu].”
The Administrator stated that “all of the residents’ flu swabs that were taken were negative. They did not have to notify the Health Department of any infection [and stated that] there was no one currently in the role of the Infection Control Nurse.” The Administrator stated that that position has been open for the past 1.5 - 2 months and that the Director of Nursing had taken over the role but had resigned the previous day.
The nursing home “failed to promote care for residents in a manner and in an environment that maintains a resident’s dignity for [four residents].”
In one incident, the resident stated that “things had gotten so very, very bad since the administration changed.” She complained the Administrator or Director of Nursing took the chucks away (a thick absorbent bed pad). The resident stated that “the chucks were the washable kind [and that] she now has to mess her sheets every day.”
