This issues had nothing to do with the quality of care provided by a wonderful staff. The issues were financial and the fact that money was not spent to do what was required and needed to be done. It is of note that none of this had anything to do with a patient injury or death.

"The Pennsylvania Department of Health in March found deficiencies and violations that threatened patient health and put their safety in immediate jeopardy." Interesting to note that various views provided in "CMS Hospital Compare" would never lead you to believe this. Valuable tool.
