Iowa inspectors ask feds to fine hospital

AP/Chicago Tribune, September 16, 2008
Iowa officials say they are taking a rare action and asking federal officials to fine a Clinton hospital $10,000 for allegedly contributing to the death of a nursing home patient. The Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals says it has asked the CMS to fine Mercy Medical Center of Clinton $10,000 for alleged violations found during an April inspection of its hospital-based nursing home.
