- Failure to Provide and Implement an Infection Protection and Control Program – citation #F880 date August 15, 2019
- Failure to Maintain 15 Months of Resident Assessments in the Resident’s Active Clinical Record – citation #F286 date September 19, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure the Infection Prevention and Control Policy and Procedures were reviewed and updated annually.” The facility failed to ensure the “Infection Prevention and Control Policy included a monitoring and surveillance system for identifying infection rates, trends, and corrective actions taken under” the program.
The Director of Nursing indicated that “the Night Nurse had the Infection Control Policy/Protocol at home, and it would be available [the next day].” However, the Director of Nursing “confirmed being responsible for the Infection Control Program.” The following day, the surveyors reviewed the Infection Control Program Policy. However, “revision dates were all blank.” The Administrator acknowledged that “the document was undated and had not been reviewed.”
The facility “failed to ensure the MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessments were maintained and accessible to the staff for [nine residents].”
On September 14, 2017, during the morning hours, “two Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) indicated they did not know where the MDS Assessments were located.” The Interim Director of Nursing verified the “MDS Assessments for residents were not maintained on the unit or in the clinical record and were not available to the staff.”
The Director of Medical Records “confirmed the MDS Assessments were not printed out or made available to staff members.” The facility Administrator verified that “there was no storage area designated for MDS Reports and the facility would establish a new electronic record system in the upcoming months.”
The Administrator also indicated that “there was no formal written policy regarding the MDS. However, the facility follows the guidelines for MDS 3.0 Requirements, and the MDS was an important document that should be made available to staff as part of the clinical record.”
