- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date March 9, 2017
- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date April 19, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure a safe and sanitary environment in the laundry room and with the resident’s applied delivery to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of infection.”
The state investigators observed a cart containing oxygen tubing, Kleenex, and nonsterile gloves used by a Central Supply employee inside a resident’s room. Protocol dictates that the cart must be left outside the doorway and never brought into the resident’s room to avoid the spread of contamination.
The surveyors also observed the soiled linen room in the laundry department that had a facility for a buffer with buffering pads in the same room as soiled linen that has the potential of spreading infection throughout the nursing home. There was also not any working soap dispenser in that room.
The Director of Nursing, who also serves as the Infection Control Nurse, “confirmed the facility equipment should never be stored in the soiled linen separating room.” The Director stated that “clean mops should not be stored next to the soiled linens and the soap dispensers are to be in working condition for the staff to properly wash their hands to prevent the spread of infection.”
The facility “failed to implement an ongoing infection prevention and control program by not following manufacturer guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting blood glucose monitoring devices on one of two medication carts.” The nursing home also failed to “develop a Facility Water Management Program to reduce Legionella growth and the spread of waterborne pathogens.”
The surveyors observed a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) during a medication pass who “failed to disinfect the glucometer monitor [before] obtaining a blood sugar reading and clean the meter with alcohol wipes following its use” instead of following acceptable sanitation protocols.
The facilities policy indicated that “the glucometers are to be cleaned and disinfected before and after each use with a disinfectant wipe per manufacturer’s instruction.” Additionally, the Executive Director “was unable to produce documentation that the facility had developed and implemented a Facility Water Management Program to reduce Legionella growth and spread in the facility water system.” The Director informed the state survey team that “we just do not have one.”
