- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date June 7, 2018
- Failure to Ensure That Every Resident’s Drug Regimen Is Free from Unnecessary Medications – citation #F329 date September 21, 2017
The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to ensure that contact precaution measures were maintained for [two residents].” The investigation involved the observation of a housekeeper “going into the room of [a contagious resident at 8:30 AM] without applying Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and coming out of the room carrying trash in a plastic bag. The PPE cart was located outside of the room.”
Later that day at 2:04 PM, a Registered Nurse (RN) revealed that the resident “remained on contact precautions for [a highly contagious infectious disease].” At 2:44 PM, a different housekeeper was observed “cleaning the room of [the resident while not wearing PPE]. A sign on the door the room warned: Attention Visitors, Please Report to the Nurses’ Station before Entering this Room.”
The investigators interviewed the second housekeeper who said that “she was not wearing PPE because she believed the resident was no longer on contact precaution because the resident was out of the room. The resident was given permission to leave her room and visit her daughter in the courtyard.”
Five minutes later, the RN confirmed that “the resident had not had any loose stools for a while and the Nurse Practitioner (NP) had given the resident permission to leave the room and visit her family member outside in the courtyard.” However, “the NP still needed to check with the Director Nursing to see if the resident was eligible to be taken off of contact precautions. Until the NP gives permission, contact precaution measures continued for the resident.”
The following morning, the sign outside the resident’s room remained in place on the door. The surveyors interviewed the Director of Nursing who also serves as the Infection Control Program Manager. The Director confirmed: “if a resident is suspected of having a transmissible infection [like the resident had] staff will place the resident on contact precautions.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure three residents [remained] free of potentially unnecessary medications. Specifically, [one resident] was receiving ‘as needed’ antipsychotic medication and a second and the third resident were receiving ‘as needed’ anti-anxiety medications without attempts to provide non-pharmacological interventions [before] the use of these drugs.”
The Director of Nursing confirmed that “clinical staff should evaluate a resident and then provide non-ecological interventions.”
