WHAT IS QAPI?

QAPI is the merger of two complementary approaches to quality management, Quality Assurance (QA) and Performance Improvement (PI). QA and PI combine to form QAPI, a comprehensive approach to ensuring high quality care. Both involve seeking and using information, but they differ in key ways:

QA is a process of meeting quality standards and assuring that care reaches an acceptable level. Nursing homes typically set QA thresholds to comply with regulations. They may also create standards that go beyond regulations. QA is a reactive, retrospective effort to examine why a facility failed to meet certain standards. QA activities do improve quality, but efforts frequently end once the standard is met.

PI (also called Quality Improvement – QI) is a proactive and continuous study of processes with the intent to prevent or decrease the likelihood of problems by identifying areas of opportunity and testing new approaches to fix underlying causes of persistent/systemic problems. PI in nursing homes aims to improve processes involved in health care delivery and resident quality of life. PI can make good quality even better.

QAPI Written Plan

Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) is a data driven and proactive approach to quality improvement. All members of an organization, including residents, are involved in continuously identifying opportunities for improvement. Gaps in systems are addressed through planned interventions with a goal of improving the overall quality of life and quality of care and services delivered to nursing home residents.

The QAPI plan will guide your organization’s performance improvement efforts. The QAPI regulation requires a written plan. This plan is a framework for an effective, comprehensive, data driven program that focuses on the indicators that reflect outcomes of care and quality of life. The plan will assist your organization in achieving what you have identified as the purpose of QAPI in your organization. The QAPI plan also is intended to be a living document that your organization will continue to review and revise. Your written QAPI plan will be made available to a state agency, federal surveyor, or CMS upon request. It reflects the way your organization has developed, implemented, and maintained your quality program.

Infection Prevention, Control & Immunizations

Infection Control: This facility task must be used to investigate compliance at F880, F881, F882, F883, F885, F886, F887, and F888. For the purpose of this task, “staff” includes facility employees (regardless of clinical responsibilities or resident contact), licensed practitioners, adult students, trainees, and volunteers; and individuals who provide care, treatment or other services for the facility and/or its residents, under contract or by other arrangement. The infection prevention and control program (IPCP) must be facility-wide and include all departments and contracted services. If a specific care area concern is identified, it should be evaluated under the specific care area, such as for pressure ulcers, respiratory care, catheter care, and medication pass observations which include central lines, peripheral IVs, and oral/IM/respiratory medications.

Entry and screening procedures as well as resident care guidance have varied over the progression of COVID-19 transmission in facilities. Facilities are expected to be in compliance with CMS requirements and surveyors will use guidance that is in effect at the time of the survey. Refer to QSO memos released at: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Provider-Enrollment-and-Certification/SurveyCertificationGenInfo/Policy-andMemos-to- States-and-Regions.

Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) provide basic medical care to the sick, injured, and disabled under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs) and doctors. The LPN/LVN profession only requires you to obtain a diploma, certificate, or associate degree from an accredited nursing program; these typically take one or two years. The term ‘LPN’ is most frequently used to describe these professionals, though some states prefer to call them LVNs.

This is a rapidly evolving situation; please check the CDC website often for the latest recommendations.

AMDA Update on COVID-19

FDA announces voluntary nationwide recall of all liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech and distributed by six companies

  • [UPDATE 8/9/2016]  FDA is alerting health care professionals and consumers of PharmaTech’s voluntary recall expansion to include all liquid products due to possible Burkholderia cepacia contamination. These products were manufactured in its Davie, Florida, facility, and distributed and labeled by six firms – Rugby, Major, Bayshore, Metron, Centurion, and Virtus.

Consumers, pharmacies, and health care facilities that have product which is being recalled should stop using and dispensing them immediately. Using these products in a patient whose immune system is compromised could result in infections, which may be life-threatening.

To date, FDA has received adverse event reports related to oral liquid docusate sodium and is not aware of any adverse event reports related to the additional recalled products.

FDA and CDC will provide additional information when it is available.

FDA announces voluntary nationwide recall of oral liquid docusate sodium manufactured by PharmaTech and distributed by Rugby Laboratories

[7/16/16]  U.S. Food and Drug Administration is alerting health care professionals that PharmaTech LLC, Davie, Florida, is voluntarily recalling all non-expired lots of Diocto Liquid, a docusate sodium solution distributed by Rugby Laboratories, Livonia, Michigan. The agency confirmed the product has been contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia, a bacteria linked to an outbreak in five states.

PharmaTech manufactures the oral liquid docusate sodium, which is distributed nationwide by Rugby with a Rugby label in one pint (473 mL) bottles.

In addition, FDA has received several adverse event reports of B. cepacia infections in patients. Some of these reports identify liquid docusate sodium products manufactured by companies other than PharmaTech. FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to investigate the extent of this issue in order to identify other potentially contaminated liquid docusate sodium products.

Patient safety is our top priority. FDA joins CDC in recommending that clinicians not use any liquid docusate sodium product as a stool softener or for any other medical purpose.

FDA and CDC will provide additional information when it is available.

FDA encourages health care professionals and patients to report adverse events or quality problems experienced with the use of oral liquid docusate sodium products to FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program:

Medicare Patient Resources

As you may know, seniors who aren’t located in nursing homes often require extra supplies and equipment called Durable medical equipment (DME), allowing them to remain independent. This special type of equipment often comes with a hefty price tag. Fortunately, certain medicare plans can lower these costs, if not all, but it can be tricky to navigate.

As a Medicare patient resource center (Note: we do not sell or provide healthcare plans), we’ve made it our mission to help seniors get the most out of Medicare. As I’m sure you already know, Medicare can be complicated for most seniors and their families to try and navigate through. This is why we have published a comprehensive guide to help understand eligibility and, most importantly, what type of durable medical equipment is covered.

How to Become a CNA

In the years to come, our country is projected to experience a shortage of nurses that will only be aggravated by the aging Baby Boomer generation. Considering nurses’ contributions to the entire medical industry, the impact would degrade our society’s health at large. It’s increasingly more important than ever to encourage individuals to pursue or advance their careers in nursing.

However, the variety of degree and certificate options, and all the acronyms that come with them can make the nursing field difficult to navigate. In order to help alleviate the confusion, my team at Nursing.org curated a streamlined series of guides breaking down degree types, program requirements, and flexible degree options. You can check them out below:
