PA: Understaffing Not a Factor in Carlisle Deaths
"It has been disappointing to see the reputation of our hospital and its dedicated team of professionals harmed over the past weeks by the inaccuracies contained within the survey, but we are comfortable that our patients know us, and we thank them for their continued confidence," Kristel said.
"We have refrained from commenting publicly until now because we respect the regulatory process. It must be based on fact and evidence, and not on people jumping to conclusions before a proper investigation can be conducted. We have worked closely with the Department of Health and provided all documentation to support our position."
