California regulators to inspect Olive View-UCLA Medical Center

Los Angeles Times, May 12, 2010

California regulators announced that they plan to inspect Olive View-UCLA Medical Center as soon as possible, following admissions by hospital and county officials that they did not know the neonatal intensive care unit had been downgraded for more than a year and a half. Los Angeles County health officials announced a shift in policy as they continued to say the facility was allowed to care for seriously ill babies despite what the state called a "critical medical staffing deficiency." Going forward, Olive View will transfer all babies who need ventilators for more than four hours, bringing them closer to meeting state requirements for a low-level neonatal intensive care unit, the Los Angeles Times reports.
