Based on review of the Pennsylvania Code for Labor and Industry, observation, and interview with staff (EMP), it was determined the facility failed to ensure the autoclave sterilizers used for sterilization of surgical supplies were inspected.

Findings include:

Review on April 16, 2024, of the Pennsylvania Code for Labor and Industry, 34 3a. revealed Autoclaves and quick opening vessels.
(a) An inspector shall inspect autoclaves and quick opening vessels with close examination of all moving parts, locking devices, pins and interlocking devices, in accordance with ANSI/NB 23.
(b) An autoclave and quick opening vessel must have interlocking systems to prevent charging the vessel until all openings and locking devices are fully in place.
(c) A pressure-relieving device must be sized in accordance with the data plate for pressure. The capacity must be based on the pressure and pipe size or the total Btu valve of the boiler. (d) Inspection of autoclaves and quick opening vessels shall be performed in accordance with 3a.111(8) (relating to field inspections).

Observation on April 16, 2024, of the facility's sterilization area revealed two AMSCO 400 Series Small Steam Sterilizers.

A request was made on April 16, 2024, for documentation of the current boiler/pressure vessel inspections. None was provided.
