ROSELAND COMMUNITY HOSPITAL 45 W 111TH STREET CHICAGO, IL 60628 Aug. 10, 2017
VIOLATION: NURSING SERVICES Tag No: A0385
Based on document review and interview, it was determined for the ICU (intensive care unit), the Hospital failed to ensure there were enough nurses available to care for the patients, and for 3 of 4 patients (Pt's # 1, 2, and 10) clinical records reviewed for monitoring on the Telemetry unit and for 1 of 1 (Pt. #2) patients requiring glucose monitoring, the Hospital failed to ensure assessments and glucose monitoring were performed per policy or as ordered. This potentially placed all patients admitted to the hospital at risk for delay in bed placement and patient monitoring. Refer to deficiencies at A- 392, A-395 A & B. As a result, it was determined that the Condition of Participation for Nursing Services 482.23 was not in compliance.
