Kaiser suspends accused doctor
Los Angeles Times, March 3, 2008
Kaiser Permanente has suspended a physician who handled high-risk pregnancies at its Fresno, CA, hospital. Perinatologist Hamid Safari allegedly botched at least two deliveries after staff members began raising concerns about his skills and demeanor. In January, federal inspectors criticized the way Kaiser responded to complaints about Safari and said that had the hospital kept a closer watch over its medical staff, two babies might still be alive.
