- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation date November 18, 2018

The survey team interviewed a non-licensed staff member at the facility who revealed that “the steam table used to serve trays on the first floor was not mobile for approximately one month due to broken wheels.” The staff member indicated that “during the interview that the steam table was plugged into an electrical outlet to prepare for meals, but the staff was not present to ensure the safety of first-floor residents.”
The employee further admitted that “the steam table was kept in an unattended and unsecured activities room on the first floor.” The Assistant Director of Dietary Management indicated that “the mobile steam tables were broken for approximately two weeks.” The Assistant confirmed that “the steam table which was no longer mobile was kept in the activities room.” The Director also established that “no one was assigned to monitor the steam table.”
