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.)

Quality Management Program Training Workshop

Don’t Get Caught Unprepared!

Together we can do this!

I have developed policies and procedures that address the new Quality Management Program regulations and I prepared sample audit tools to get things started.

I am planning to share these tools in Quality Management Program workshops in October, November, and December and into the New Year if necessary!

Clases are now available for October and November with classes for December coming soon.

I am also available to present the program in your community. Please contact me for further information.
