UCI Medical Center put under state supervision

Los Angeles Times, September 26, 2008

The University of California, Irvine Medical Center has been put under state supervision based on its anesthesiology department's "inability to provide quality healthcare in a safe environment," according to a federal report. Among other failings, doctors were cited for filling out medical records in advance, suggesting specific outcomes before procedures were done. CMS has accepted the department's plan of correction, but warns the hospital could lose federal funding if the problems are not corrected.
