California hospitals fined for violations

Los Angeles Times, August 19, 2008
Eighteen California hospitals have been fined by the state for violating laws regarding quality care for patients. It marked the fourth time the department has disciplined hospitals since a state law went into effect in 2007 authorizing the agency to fine them for placing patients in serious jeopardy. All hospitals in California are required to comply with state and federal laws to remain accredited.
