483.75(i) Sanctions.
Good faith attempts by the committee to identify and correct quality deficiencies will not be used as a basis for sanctions.

Based on review of facility policies and documentation and staff interview, it was determined that the facility failed to develop and utilize a Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI - a framework utilized to guide an organization's performance improvement efforts) Plan.

Findings include:

The facility policy entitled "Quality Assurance/Performance Improvement" dated 1/17/20, indicated that the facility will have an ongoing plan, consistent with available community and facility resources, to provide or make available services that meet the medically-related needs of it's residents and that the plan would be reviewed regularly to insure that policy, procedure and adherence to standards and regulations is attained and maintained.

Upon request, the facility was not able to provide the survey team with the facility's QAPI Plan for 2020.

During an interview on 2/06/20, at 10:07 a.m. the Director of Nursing (facility designee who oversees the QAPI committee) confirmed that the facility did not have a current facility QAPI plan to provide a framework to assure consistency in the collection of data, data tracking, goal setting, prioritizing, analyzing and monitoring for deficiencies or areas identified for by the QAPI committee.
