- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #s880 date December 20, 2018
The state investigators determined the facility failed to “follow infection control practices for [one resident].” Specifically, “the facility failed to follow infection control practices during a dressing change for [a resident and failed] to maintain infection control practices for the maintenance of [that resident’s] bed mattress.”
The surveyors noted that the mattress had “a large rip on the top right side at the seam. In one incident, the resident was coded as having an indwelling urinary catheter and feeding tube. A Registered Nurse (RN) was observed changing the resident’s suprapubic catheter drain line and gastronomy tube.
During the treatment, the RN “put on her gloves and proceeded to remove the dressing from the resident’s suprapubic catheter. She placed the removed dressing on the nightstand [then] proceeded to remove the dressing from [the resident’s] gastronomy tube and put the removed dressing in her gloves as she removed them to discard the gloves.”
While providing suprapubic catheter care and gastronomy tube care, the RN “did not change her gloves and proceeded to clean around the insertion site of the gastronomy tube. She then placed the second drainage sponge around the insertion site of the gastronomy tube.”
The surveyors asked the RN if gloves should be changed “between two different dressing sites?” The RN responded, “Yes, we should change gloves.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated April 28, 2016, investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide care and services [to] prevent the development of a pressure ulcer.” The comprehensive investigation involved a resident admitted to the facility as being identified “at risk for the development of a pressure ulcer.”
The survey team interviewed a Registered Nurse (RN) regarding the admission nursing assessment and the risk the resident had to develop a pressure ulcer. The RN stated that she had completed the resident’s “admission skin assessment but had not done the pressure ulcer risk assessment. She stated another facility nurse had completed the risk assessment [and that the] resident did not have any pressure areas when she was admitted.”
The resident developed a facility-acquired sacral wound measuring 3.5 cm wide x 6.4 cm long x 0.0 cm deep.
