Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 130564.015 Event: 10/04/2020Employee With Covid-19 Infection Dies
At 8:00 a.m. on October 4, 2020, an employee was a part time RN that worked in a long term nursing home caring for residents. Employee #1 tested positive for CO VID-19 as part of facility wide testing done after another employee came to work ill and was tested as positive for COVID-19. Multiple employees and residents tested positive for the coronavirus. Employee #1 became ill one week after test ing positive and she admitted herself to the hospital where she succumbed to her illness a little over one month from the onset of symptoms. The facility manag ement determined that the part time nurse also worked with COVID-19 positive cas es through Hospice Care. The site did not have any positive resident cases for COVID-19 until an outbreak occurred at the same time Employee #1 tested positive along with several other employees. The source of the outbreak could not be de termined but was deemed by the employer as being external due to no residents we re known to have COVID-19 and screening procedures were in place for both reside nts and employees. The facility's ventilation system was determined to be a po tential carrier of the virus and changes were made prior to the outbreak at the facility ending. The employee died from complications associated with contractin g COVID-19.
