  1. A resident returned from the hospital to a RCFE AL apartment after being treated for MRSA of the nares. The hospital did not reculture after treatment to see if the resident was negative or colonized. Should we as a facilty implement our isolation policy? Do we need to have the resident tested per regulations? What about the spouse?

    Thank You

  2. would like to get a free sample of the competency checklist.
    thank you very much.

  3. Anitra… This previous blog post gives more info on MRSA in an RCFE: http://blog.careandcompliance.com/resident-care/infection-control/retain-resident-mrsa_06-28-2011/. As far as isolation, I would contact the physician immediately and follow his/her orders. You will need an exception if it is active MRSA.

    Brenda… There is a link to a sample checklist in the post above.
