- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation date December 14, 2017
According to surveyors, the facility “failed to notify the Physician of an abnormal International Normalized Ratio (INR)” for one resident with abnormal results. The facility also “did not notify the Physician” for three days “when the resident became unresponsive. The facility transferred the resident to the hospital, and the CT scan of the head revealed a small acute left subdural hemorrhage with mild subarachnoid hemorrhaging (bleeding) and a 10mm midline shift.”
The testing was performed to determine the effectiveness of anticoagulation therapy. The resident’s Comprehensive Care Plan revealed that the resident “was at risk for abnormal bleeding or hemorrhage related to the use of anticoagulant (blood thinner). Interventions included scheduling the lab test to monitor coagulation factors, monitor the resident for signs of bleeding, and report to the Physician any signs of abnormal bleeding.”
Surveyors say the facility’s “failure to have an effective system in place to ensure residents receive Physician-ordered medications has caused or is likely to cause serious injury, harm, impairment or death.” The investigators placed an Immediate Jeopardy on the facility to ensure compliance.
The state survey team noted the facility “failed to ensure staff performed infection control practices as evidenced by a lack of glove change and failure to complete hand hygiene during perineal care.”
The investigative team interviewed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who revealed “you forgot to perform hand hygiene and change gloves during [resident’s] perineal care. She revealed a failure to do so could cause the spread of germs and cause infections.”
