Based on observation and interview, it was determined the facility failed to secure oxygen cylinders, affecting one of two smoke compartments within the component.

Findings include:

1. Observation on March 9, 2021, at 10:02 AM revealed eight oxygen "E" cylinders laying unsecured on the floor of the Oxygen Storage Room.

Interview with the Administrator on March 9, 2021, at 10:02 AM confirmed the oxygen cylinders were not secured.

Plan of Correction:

An Oxygen E Tank holding rack has been ordered. This rack should arrive by 3/22/2021 and the oxygen tanks will be secured.

To keep the tanks secured until the rack arrives a large weighted block is being used to hold the tanks against the wall. It is like a weighted book end. The Clinical Director checks the Oxygen room daily to be sure the tanks have not moved. The Clinical Director will report the status of the oxygen tanks at the Governing Board Meeting.
