California hospital suspends open heart surgeries

Fresno Bee, June 20, 2008

Saint Agnes Medical Center in Fresno, CA, has suspended open-heart surgeries after a state report found that the facility was not protecting patients "amid an outbreak of infections" that began last year and continued through May. The hospital now plans to bring in auditors from Michigan-based Trinity Health, its corporate parent; an outside agency will also review Saint Agnes' cardiac-surgery program.
