Based on observation, record review, and staff interview, the facility staff failed to
practice acceptable infection control practices and prevent cross-contamination during the
provision of care for three residents (Resident #2, #3 and #8) in a review of 12 sampled
residents. The facility failed to have a plan on how to test for Legionella and what to do
if Legionella was found. The facility census was 37.
1. Review of the facility’s policy, Handwashing, dated (MONTH) (YEAR), showed the purpose
is to reduce transmission of organisms from resident to resident, from nursing staff to
resident; and from resident to nursing staff.
Review of the facility’s policy, Gloves, dated (MONTH) (YEAR), showed the following:
-Wear gloves when it can be reasonably anticipated that hands will be in contact wit
mucous membranes, non-intact skin, any moist body substances (blood, urine, feces, wound
drainage, oral secretions, sputum, vomitus, or items/surfaces soiled with these
substances) and/or persons with a rash. Gloves must be changed between residents and
between contacts with different body sites of the same residents. If the glove is torn or
a needle stick or other injury occurs, the glove should be removed, discarded in the trash
and a new glove used promptly as resident safety permits;
-REMEMBER: Gloves are not a cure-all. They should reduce the likelihood of contaminating
the hands, but gloves cannot prevent penetrating injuries due to needles or sharp objects.
Dirty gloves are worse than dirty hands because microorganisms adhere to the surface of a
glove easier than to the skin on your hands. Handling medical equipment and devices with
contaminated gloves is not acceptable.
2. Review of the undated facility policy, Water Management Program to Reduce Legionella
Growth showed the following:
-Policy: Our facility will develop and implement a Water Management Program to inhibit
microbial growth in building systems that reduce the risk of growth and spread Legionella
and opportunistic pathogens in water Purpose: To establish and maintain an infection
prevention and control program designed to provide safe, sanitary, and comfortable
environment and to help prevent the development and transmission of communicable diseases
and infections;
-The facility will create a water management committee which will consist of the
administrator, Director of Nursing, and Maintenance Director;
-The water management committee will implement a water management program that considers
the ASHRAE industry standard and the CDC toolkit, and includes control measures, such as
physical controls, temperature management, disinfectant level control, visual inspections,
and environmental testing for pathogens;
-The water management committee will specify testing protocols and acceptable ranges for
control measures, and document the results of testing and correction actions taken when
control limits are not maintained.
During interview on 7/18/19 at 8:08 A.M., the Maintenance Supervisor said the facility did
not have a CDC toolkit as the facility policy indicated. The facility removed a fish pond
and a fountain a couple years ago. He did not feel the facility was the type of facility
that was at risk for Legionella. The facility did not complete any type of annual cleaning
or disinfecting as indicated per the facility policy or testing for environmental
pathogens. He had only heard about Legionella but had not received any training on it. He
did not know what specific areas in the facility would be considered at risk for
Legionella or what would need to be tested . The facility did complete a monthly water
inspection checklist, which included visual inspection and water temperature testing.
During interview on 7/18/19 at 10:45 A.M. the Administrator said the facility had a policy
that addressed Legionella. The policy was put in place a couple years ago. The facility
