Hartford Hospital on probation
Hartford Courant, February 11, 2008
Citing multiple lapses in patient care, the Connecticut health department has placed Hartford Hospital on probation. The department is demanding sweeping changes in the way the 800-bed teaching hospital delivers care. The hospital was cited for inadequate measures to prevent bedsores and infections; poor documentation of drug orders; and one case in which a sponge was left inside a kidney transplant patient.
