Harborchase of Venice nursing home infection control deemed lacking or inadequate
Harborchase of Venice nursing home infection control issues resulted in the facility being cited by state investigators. As a lawyer who handles cases of nursing home abuse and neglect in Venice, Florida, I review and report on recent complaint and survey inspections of local nursing homes as they are released to the public. The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration conducted an unannounced revisit inspection of Harborchase of Venice, a nursing home located at 950 Pinebrook Road, Venice, Florida 34285 on February 1st through February 2nd, 2016. This was a follow-up inspection to the one performed on December 10, 2015 at Harborchase of Venice in which the facility was found to not be in substantial compliance with state and federal law governing nursing homes. (See my March 2, 2016 post in which I detail the 19 specific violations of state and federal law cited against Harborchase of Venice at that time).
Quality assurance also deemed lacking at Harborchase of Venice nursing home
In this re-visit survey, Harborchase of Venice was found to have violated a number of the requirements set forth under the Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987. These violations included the failure to properly post nursing staffing information for the facility in a clearly viewable public space, failing to store medications and biological products in a sanitary environment, and failing to establish and maintain an adequate infection control program.
Furthermore, Harborchase of Venice was found to have “failed to maintain an effective quality assurance program to assure ongoing compliance related to deficiencies identified during the annual survey completed on” December 10, 2015. The investigators, with this survey, focused on dirty areas of the nursing home and stressed the importance of following measures to prevent the spread of serious pathological organisms such as Clostridium difficile (C.diff).
