|SAINT LUKE'S CUSHING HOSPITAL||711 MARSHALL STREET LEAVENWORTH, KS 66048||June 28, 2011|
|VIOLATION: PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT||Tag No: A0700|
|Based on observation, interviews and review of documents, the hospital failed to meet the life safety code (LSC) requirements as cited at K-145 that assures the health and safety of all patients and others who may be present in the building when emergency power would be needed.
The cumulative effect of this deficient practice may prevent the emergency power supply from being available at the time of a power loss resulting in the hospital's inability to ensure the safety of patients and others.
