- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation date October 12, 2018
- Verify That a Nurse Aide Has Been Trained According to Acceptable Standards – citation date October 12, 2018
The “facility failed to follow appropriate infection control procedures for the use of antibiotics” involving one resident “reviewed for urinary tract infection and the implementation of an effective infection control program.”
Documentation shows that three urine samples were obtained from a resident and sent to the lab with results revealing that the resident “had an organism called Providencia Stuartii” in their urine. Other lab work shows that the resident had elevated white blood cells. The resident received an antibiotic to treat the urinary tract infection (UTI) per Physician’s orders with no adverse effects.
The surveyors interviewed the Assistant Director of Nursing who is serving as the facility Infection Preventionist while in the presence of the Director of Nursing. The investigators asked the Assistant Director about “the facility’s monthly Outcome Surveillance that was conducted for the resident’s with infections.” However, the infectious resident with a urinary tract infection was not on the list “as receiving an antibiotic to treat the UTI.”
When asked, the Assistant Director was unable to state why the resident’s name was missing from the list and did not know “the type of organism that prompted the antibiotic use for [the resident].”
According to investigators, the “facility failed to ensure that all Certified Nursing Staff required by the facility had certifications in good standing. The deficient practice occurred to [one employee] hired within the last four months and was listed as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).”
The survey team reviewed the employee’s personnel file that “did not have proof that the registry for nurses’ aide’s certification was checked to ensure that her certification was in good standing.” The survey team interviewed a Human Resource Staff Member who stated that the CNA “was terminated on October 1, 2018, because [the CNA] was not certified within the required 120 days.”
