3 RESIDENT HALLWAY RESTROOMS: The Director of Nursing has cited "fall risks" associated with self-closing devices on the 3 resident restrooms (near Rooms 1, 6, and 15) in the hallway. She stated many residents use assisted devices such as walkers and wheelchairs and she is concerned about the doors hitting the residents and their devices. Due to this concern and only the residents use those restrooms, the self-closing devices will not be required on those doors at this time. Those doors are to be kept closed at all times.
