Caring Nurses Brooklyn Park Complaint Findings for Nursing Care
In a report concluded on December 17, 2012, the Minnesota Department of Health cites Caring Nurses Brooklyn Park for nursing care.
It is alleged that the agency did not follow state statutes and rules when they admitted a client prior to ensuring that a physician would accept his care. In addition, the agency did not have adequate information in the admission materials to meet the client’s needs. Concerns were also raised regarding the care of two other clients in the shared apartments and also whether such a setting is adequate in relation to infection control and proper ventilation considering all the clients are vent dependent.
Substantiated Complaint Against Caring Nurses Brooklyn Park – Infectious Disease
Infectious disease control starts with employees. According to osha.org, healthcare workers (HCWs) are occupationally exposed to a variety of infectious diseases during the performance of their duties. The delivery of healthcare services requires a broad range of workers, such as physicians, nurses, technicians, clinical laboratory workers, first responders, building maintenance, security and administrative personnel, social workers, food service, housekeeping, and mortuary personnel. Moreover, these workers can be found in a variety of workplace settings, including hospitals, nursing care facilities, outpatient clinics (e.g., medical and dental offices, and occupational health clinics), ambulatory care centers, and emergency response settings. The diversity among HCWs and their workplaces makes occupational exposure to infectious diseases especially challenging. For example, not all workers in the same healthcare facility, not all individuals with the same job title, and not all healthcare facilities will be at equal risk of occupational exposure to infectious agents.
