 Plan of Correction - To be completed: 09/23/2019

Preparation and submission of this POC is required by state and federal law. This POC does not constitute an admission for purposes of general liability, professional malpractice or any other court proceeding.
1. Facility is unable to retroactively correct the nursing hours for one of the 14 days reviewed. Moving forward the facility will ensure that facility PPD will remain at 2.7 or higher
2. To identify days with the potential to be affected the NHA reviewed nursing hours for the past 7 days. No negative findings were noted
3. To prevent this from recurring the NHA/designee educated Human Resources and the RN supervisors on the minimum numbers of hours of general nursing care required in each 24 hour period per Pennsylvania State Code.
4. To monitor and maintain ongoing compliance Human Resources/designee will complete the PPD spreadsheet to ensure accuracy. Weekly the NHA/designee and DON/designee will complete an audit reviewing the nursing hours for the following week as a projection of future nursing hours to meet the 2.7. Any negative findings will be immediately corrected. The NHA/designee will conduct staffing meetings after morning stand up and complete an audit to monitor the daily ppd. Any negative findings will be immediately corrected.
Results of the audits will be brought to QAPI for review and revision as indicated.
