Observations:

Based on observation and interview, it was determined the facility failed to install and maintain alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) stations in multiple locations, affecting one of three floors.

Findings include:

1. Observation on December 11, 2018, between 9:40 a.m. and 9:58 a.m., revealed multiple alcohol-based hand rub stations were installed above carpeted areas, in multiple locations throughout the ambulatory surgical center portion of this component.

Exit interview with the facilities manager and the facility administrator between 10:15 a.m. and 10:25 a.m., on December 11, 2018, confirmed the ABHR deficiencies.





Plan of Correction:

Engineering will removed carpet below hand sanitizer and install none combustible flooring material (24" x 24" ) directly below dispenser(s) to catch material (this is in excess of the potential drip, fallout area of staff using the sanitizers). O.R. Department head will review with affected staff the proper use of hand sanitizing and assuring compliance. Director of Engineering will review requirements for installation of hand sanitizers based on requirements of 28 Pa. Code 569.2 STANDARD
