Atlanta's Grady Hospital gets passing marks

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, November 7, 2008

The Joint Commission has provided Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital with a clean bill of health on safety and care issues almost a year after a critical report threatened the hospital's access to federal money. "Grady is fully accredited," said Kenneth Powers, media relations manager of the Joint Commission. The commission's surprise inspection on Nov. 4 followed months of intense efforts at the hospital to resolve problems identified during an agency inspection in 2007. The inspection last winter found problems with broken equipment, sanitation issues such as housekeeping and staff hand-washing, and documentation of patients.
