Assisted Living QMP Update

From 1/4/16 to 1/13/16 six Quality Management Program surveys were completed.

Three of the six surveys were conducted in large facilities, and the remaining surveys were conducted in small facilities.

• The three small facilities did not have a QMP.

• One large facility had a QMP; however, there was deficient practice found in the areas of medication administration. The QMP documented medication administration activities; however, the QMP activities did not resolve problems, as evidenced by current deficient practice.

• A second large facility had a QMP; however, it did not contain all of the required elements and there was no documentation provided regarding the QMP activities.

• A third large facility had a QMP; however, current deficient practice was found and it was later determined the facility failed to conduct QMP activities, as disclosed in the plan.

Flu Season is Here

Residents, staff and providers should be vaccinated by now. Those who have not been vaccinated can be
vaccinated at any time in the next month or so.

Please review your policies & procedures to ensure that you meet
CDC & CDPH&E guidelines and recommendations.

During the time period of October 1 through March 31 of each winter, employees and volunteers who experience influenza-like symptoms must report their symptoms to their supervisor and/or to the Facility Administrator.

Employees and volunteers who are symptomatic with influenza-like illness must be excluded from the facility because such persons may contribute to the transmission of influenza during an outbreak. Exclusion must continue until 48 hours after symptoms have subsided.

By declining the immunization, employees and volunteers agree that if a physician, a nurse practitioner, a physician’s assistant and/or representatives from the Department of Health determine that there is an influenza outbreak in the facility, they may be required to wear a surgical mask while working with residents.

Assisted Living Residences may require that a resident or employee or volunteer see and be treated by his or her physician when one or more of the following changes or concerns have occurred:

• If the resident or staff member has developed or been exposed to a
communicable disease (infectious disease).

• When there is evidence of possible infection (open sores, fever, chills, etc.)

Assisted Living Residences must report their employee vaccination rate
to the Department on an annual basis. (See Web Portal Information.)
