Health department raises alarm about RI hospital infection controls after measles incident

Middletown Patch, April 3, 2014
Serious deficiencies in infection control policy and procedures at Rhode Island Hospital has prompted the state Department of Health to order the hospital take immediate corrective action including the retraining of staff, stating that without intervention, the hospital's current procedures "have the potential to harm the public." The action, outlined in a March 21 consent order that was released to the media on Wednesday, ordered the hospital to develop a corrective plan of action signed by the hospital's CEO by March 28 and provide the health department with a root-cause analysis no later than May 1.
