Ten California hospitals fined for patient safety issues

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued ten penalties this week to California hospitals–and fines totaling $675,000–after investigations found the facilities’ noncompliance with licensing requirements caused, or was likely to cause, serious injury or death to patients.

The penalties range for lack of compliance for everything from telemetry monitoring to cardiac catheterization processes, respiratory care and general patient safety.
