Report: Ocoee, FL, hospital deficient in handling abuse allegations
Orlando Sentinel, June 23, 2008
Investigators have found Health Central hospital in Ocoee, FL, deficient for its failure to notify the state when one of its nurses was accused of sexually assaulting one patient and inappropriately touching another. Florida law requires hospitals to report every allegation of sexual misconduct to the Department of Health, but the hospital had no policy at the time to do so, according to a report. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration investigated Health Central earlier this year and identified the reporting deficiency.
