Specifically, the facility conducted a skin test on these residents at the time they moved in as part of the screening process. The facility, according to interviews conducted with staff, uses an outside home health agency for the residents’ tests. The residents were never provided with an option to have the test done by another provider. Instead, they were given a form that consented to allowing the home health agency to conduct the test and were charged $10.00. The residents stated to the surveyor that they believed they were required to take the test with the home health agency as they were residents of Atria Windsor Woods. One resident stated that when she mentioned this test to her doctor, he had said that he could have conducted the test for her and that the cost would have been covered by her insurance. The need for residents to have the tests done by the third-party home health agency was discussed with the Administrator.
