Los Angeles Times, April 6, 2009
California health inspectors have fined Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center $560 for violating state workplace rules, a penalty assessed after investigators confirmed employee complaints that helicopter exhaust fumes were entering the hospital's ventilation system from the rooftop landing pad. The fine by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health stemmed from a January inspection of the $1.02-billion facility, which opened its doors in November.
