Feds approve Tampa General Hospital’s plan for improvements

St. Petersburg Times, September 4, 2008

Tampa (FL) General Hospital’s plan to fix safety problems in its psychiatric unit has been approved by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Regulators identified the problems after two patients committed suicide in the psych ward in July, and investigators have been at the hospital reviewing the improvements. Tampa General will post its improvement plan on its Web site once the plan has received final approval.
