The state investigators determined that “the facility failed to follow infection control practice while providing care to [one resident] with the Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter [PICC].”
Observations were made of a Registered Nurse (RN) preparing a Physician’s order medication to be given intravenously. The RN “prepared the IV solution and intravenous tubing to attached it to the IV pump. The double lumen Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) was located on the resident’s left upper chest.”
At that time, the RN “donned gloves and proceeded to cleanse each of the individual dual lumen ports with a separate alcohol white. One port was cleansed with an alcohol wipe and discarded on the resident’s over the bed table. The second port was cleansed with alcohol wipe and then discarded on the resident’s over the bed table. This ‘over the bed table’ had multiple books and personal items of the resident.”
The RN then connected the IV tubing to the IV pump and encountered air in the tubing. The Registered Nurse then disconnected the tube from the pump and primed the tubing to eliminate any air in the tubing.
While still wearing gloves, the RN cleansed one of the PICC ports with one of the discarded used alcohol wipes. After cleansing, the RN discarded the alcohol wipe on the resident’s over the bed table and picked up the second discarded used alcohol wipe and proceeded to cleanse the other PICC port with the use alcohol wipe and again discarded this wipe on the resident’s over the bed table.”
The investigators interviewed the RN who confirmed: “the above-listed findings that aseptic technique was not maintained to prevent cross-contamination by using the individual discarded alcohol wipes a second time to cleanse each individual PICC line port for [the resident].”
The nursing home “failed to follow manufacturer’s instructions for dating glucometer testing solutions open on [two of five] medication carts and cleaning of one anti-coagulation meter.”
It was determined that the facility failed to follow established protocols to prevent the transmission of infection through cross-contamination.
