- Failure to Develop Programs That Investigate, Control and Keep Infections from Spreading – citation #F441 date July 27, 2017
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to ensure laundry staff covered resident’s personal clothes while transporting the clothes on the floor on July 26, 2017.” The nursing home also failed to ensure that “a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) washed her hands between glove changing when providing care to a resident on July 26, 2017. These deficient practices were observed on one of three days of the survey and affected [one resident] observed for incontinent care.”
At 7:36 AM on July 26, 2017, the survey team observed a Laundry Aide “passing out the residents’ personal clothes on South Hall 2.” The residents’ clothing was not covered at this time. Approximately one hour later, the survey team interviewed the Laundry Aide and asked, “how should the [residents’ clothing] be when it is brought from the laundry?” The Aide said she “had never been told [how] that she knew of.”
The Laundry Aide agreed that the “clothing rack containing the residents’ personal clothes yesterday morning [was not covered] when the surveyor observed her putting the clothes out.” The surveyor asked the Aide, “what would be considered when clothes were transported without being covered?” The Aide responded, “Infection Control.”
On a separate occasion, a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “was observed providing incontinence care for [a resident].” After cleaning the resident’s front side, the CNA “removed her gloves and put on clean gloves, then continued with incontinence care.”
The CNA “did not wash her hands between changing gloves. Upon completing and before placing the clean brief, [the CNA] again changed gloves without washing her hands between changing gloves.” The survey team interviewed the CNA, who confirmed that the policy for changing gloves required gloves to be changed “after care and when gloves were dirty.”
The CNA verified that “she should sanitize in between,” but did not. The CNA also confirmed that there was harm in contagious bacteria when “not sanitizing between blood changes.”
