State disciplines Hospital of Central Connecticut

Hartford Courant, May 28, 2009
The Hospital of Central Connecticut has been disciplined by state regulators after inspections found several violations—including a catheter that was left in too long, leading to an infection that may have contributed to a patient's death. Under a consent agreement, the hospital will pay a $2,500 fine and implement a number of changes, including reviews or revisions of policies related to radiology safety for pregnant women, monitoring and removing catheters, medical record documentation, and prevention, monitoring and treatment of bedsores and wounds.
