  • Assisted Living Action Plan Response for Adverse Events

    Contains 5 Component(s)

    It is critical to address and mitigate adverse events and potential adverse events. An action plan, otherwise known as a mitigation plan, is a necessary response to adverse events and potential adverse events. For many such events, it is important to respond and start the mitigation process immediately. These tools were initially developed by members of AHCA’s Survey/Regulatory Committee and adapted for assisted living communities to assist providers in addressing adverse events and potential adverse events, documenting and tracking the steps they have taken, and identifying best practices for ongoing improvement. Communities may use different titles or terms than the action plans, such as Director of Health Services instead of Director of Nursing, or service plan instead of care plan. Please adapt the plans to reflect your AL community. Use of these tools does not guarantee regulatory compliance nor mitigate potential liability. Providers should adapt their tools, policies, and processes as needed to ensure compliance with current federal and state requirements and use both professional judgement and the advice of legal counsel in determining whether or how to share these mitigation tools.

    It is critical to address and mitigate adverse events and potential adverse events. An action plan, otherwise known as a mitigation plan, is a necessary response to adverse events and potential adverse events. For many such events, it is important to respond and start the mitigation process immediately.

    Examples of adverse events/potential adverse events include:

    • Falls (not following the care plan, use of gait belt, one vs. two-person transfers)
    •  Falls with a mechanical lift
    •  Elopement
    •  Allegation of abuse or neglect
    •  Water too hot
    •  Smoking (supervised vs. unsupervised, with oxygen, defined smoking area, all about safety)
    •  Bedrails (entrapment, assessment for use)
    •  Significant medication errors such as cardiac medications, chemo, insulin, morphine, Coumadin
    •  Infection Control – outbreaks (e.g. scabies, bedbugs, MRSA, C-Difficile, Noro Virus, Legionella)
    •  Lack of timely or complete evaluation of a change in condition
    •  Pressure ulcer – lack of prevention or following prevention measures
    •  Grievances and resident/tenant council feedback

    Objectives:

    1. Identify adverse events that could potentially have a negative impact on residents/tenants as well as on a community’s regulatory compliance.   
    2.  Establish a routine root cause analysis process to identify the specific/source, root cause or causal factor of the problem.  
    3.  Create a structured process for developing a mitigation plan to address the adverse event/potential adverse event and minimize similar events for all residents/tenants:
      1. Complete the Initial Mitigation Action Plan 
      2. QAPI members complete the formal documentation of the Mitigation Action Plan
    4.  Use information learned by sharing results and Plan with the QAPI committee for continued monitoring.

    Note: These tools were initially developed by members of AHCA’s Survey/Regulatory Committee and adapted for assisted living communities to assist providers in addressing adverse events and potential adverse events, documenting and tracking the steps they have taken, and identifying best practices for ongoing improvement. Communities may use different titles or terms than the action plans, such as Director of Health Services instead of Director of Nursing, or service plan instead of care plan.

    The In a competitive and ever-changing market, assisted living providers must identify ways to stay a step ahead and stand out to potential customers and referral sources. The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program provides the external validation necessary to set yourself apart from the competition. Historically, the Quality Award Program has been perceived as being only for skilled nursing centers. However, more assisted living communities than ever before are applying for and receiving the National Quality Award. In 2018, 114 assisted living centers received the Bronze award, 47 centers received the Silver award and two (the first AL communities) received the Gold award. On this webinar, we will break down the commonly cited barriers preventing assisted living communities from participating in the program and talk about the many free resources available to help assisted living providers succeed. We will also hear from the two 2018 Gold recipient assisted living organizations about their journey, including how they did it and how it benefited their organization. Join us to learn how the Quality Award program can help you succeed!
