Surgery center cited for patient gurney in the OR hallway

We had a patient being operated on and the gurney was located just outside the operating room. Is this not allowed? If the patient had an emergency, we would need the gurney to flip them over on their back to get to airway and chest. The gurney is only in the hallway against the wall while the patient is in surgery. It is not always located there.
