According to investigators, “the facility failed to schedule timely, a prescribed pacemaker evaluation for [one resident] resulting in the potential for further episodes of chest pain and emergency hospitalization.”
The survey team reviewed the hospital records that noted the “resident was sitting and talking to a friend on October 2, 2018, when she began to experience squeezing chest pain that radiated around the left breast and down the left side and was transferred to the hospital emergency room that day. She also reported having nausea, dizziness, and shortness of breath.”
The resident returned to the facility after receiving care from the hospital. Two days later on October 10, 2018, “a telephone order was written to make an appointment for her pacemaker at the hospital.” The surveyors asked the Nurse Unit Manager “if the resident went for the appointment?” The Nurse Unit Manager said that the facility scheduler “was going to call for an appointment as soon as possible.”
Approximately ten minutes later, the nurse stated that “the resident’s appointment was scheduled for November 13, 2018, a month after the order was written for an evaluation.”
The investigators asked the Director of Nursing “why the pacemaker appointment was not made until October 23, 2018,” the day of the interview. The Director responded that “she did not know and said that the scheduler was a new employee.” The surveyors requested a policy on scheduling appointments “from the Director of Nursing [who said that] she would look to see if there was [a policy], but as of the survey exit, none was provided.”
The facility “failed to ensure consistent intradepartmental surveillance and surveillance of contractor/vendors for infection control practices and issue/concerns and to conduct annual reviews of infection control policies and procedures.” The deficient practice resulted “in the potential for facility-wide spread infectious organisms affecting the entire census of ninety-three residents.”
The nursing home “failed to conduct an ongoing, documented antibiotic stewardship program to ensure proper and appropriate prescribing of antibiotics, resulting in the potential for the development of antibiotic resistance.”
The state investigators reviewed the facility’s Infection Control Program with the Infection Control Coordinator and asked, “if the facility had an established antibiotic stewardship program.” The Coordinator responded, ‘No.’ The surveyors then “asked if there was a policy/procedure related to antibiotic stewardship” to better manage infections. The Coordinator “was unsure and said that he would look into it.”
