Vegas hospital in danger of losing federal funding

AP/San Francisco Chronicle, October 2, 2008
Las Vegas-based MountainView Hospital is in danger of losing Medicare and Medicaid funding after Nevada health inspectors reported finding blood on the floor of a lab, an assistant handling equipment with bloody gloves, and no system to track whether patients picked up infections from certain medical procedures. The hospital has submitted a plan to correct the problems, and inspectors said the hospital faces an unannounced inspection during the coming months that will determine whether problems have been fixed.
