State takes no action in death at Mayo Regional Hospital
The Maine Department of Health and Human Services has decided to take no action after concluding its investigation into the death of a Mayo Regional Hospital patient who mistakenly received a massive drug overdose on June 4 while under the hospital’s care.
Anne Flanagan, assistant director of DHHS’s Division of Licensing and Regulatory Services, said Thursday that the facts surrounding the death were substantiated but no findings were made because the corrective action plan the hospital put in place after the death is working.
Flanagan confirmed Thursday that a team of DHHS acute care officials had visited Mayo Regional Hospital on July 16 to review the circumstances surrounding the death of Timothy Harvey, 51, of Atkinson.
