A dozen hospitals in California fined

Posted on September 16th, 2011 No Comments

Twelve hospitals in California have been fined by the state’s public health officials on multiple charges of medical errors and negligence. In the past four years, 124 Californian hospitals have been fined for 198 penalties totaling more than $4.6 million.

The money collected from the hospitals’ fines go towards improving patient safety. Medical errors like leaving foreign objects inside of patients during surgery, prescribing wrong medication, and unsupervised medical personnel conducting medical procedures were discovered. Each penalty carries a fine ranging from $50,000 to $75,000.

A 48 year-old man suffered neurological damage after an unsupervised nurse administered his anesthesia, an 82 year-old man died from hospital negligence after he fell causing his brain to bleed, and another patient had a lens defogging solution bottle left in his body after an operation.

According to San Antonio police, the driver of a Ford truck struck a Honda Civic after running a red light at Highway 181 and Interstate 37. The collision occurred around 6 pm on Sunday evening. It is suspected that the driver of the truck was drunk, since officers found cans of beer in the vehicle and smelled alcohol on the driver.

The driver of the Civic was hospitalized and is reportedly in serious condition. The truck driver was shaken up, but did not sustain any injuries in the collision. He will undergo a mandatory blood draw to determine if he was driving under the influence.
