According to investigators, “the facility failed to implement their abuse policy by not completing new employee reference checks for three Director of Nursing, a Certified Medication Aide, and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). The state surveyors conducted a review of employee records and found that “five staff members had not had reference checks conducted.”
The survey team interviewed the Business Office Manager to show that reference checks had not been conducted. The surveyors asked the Business Office Manager “whose responsibility it is to check references.” The Office Manager stated that “she thought the Director of Nursing was supposed to check them.”
The surveyors then interviewed the Director of Nursing and asked “who was to check the references of newly hired employees. She stated she thought someone at the corporate office did that.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure tracking and trending of infections were completed April 8, 2012 months of the control logs reviewed.” The state survey team reviewed the facility’s infection control logs on May 10, 2017, that showed one resident with Clostridium difficile [a highly contagious disease], one resident with unknown jaw infection, and one resident identified with an injury with an unknown organism had incomplete data.”
In January 2017, no trending was completed in the Infection Control Logs even though there was “two viral gastrointestinal illnesses, one Clostridium difficile infection, and one upper respiratory infection.” The surveyors interviewed the Director of Nursing and asked, “if she [is] responsible for infection control tracking and trending.” The Director confirmed, “she was.” The Director stated that “each month, the facility reviews how many infections were discovered, what types, and then determine that there was a pattern to the infections.”
The Director of Nursing described how she tracks and trends infections by gathering information in finding patterns. The Director verified “that there was missing information for tracking and trending.” However, the Director “did not provide any further tracking trending information” before the end of the investigation. The Corporate Administrator and facility Administrator reviewed the infection control logs and stated, “there are some months with some data on the log tracker, but this is not always completed.”
