Medicare program cites Mass. General for serious problems

Boston Globe, March 8, 2010

The federal Medicare program has cited Massachusetts General Hospital for serious problems found during a routine inspection last month, according to a letter sent to the hospital's president. The letter does not describe the violations found by inspectors, but an agency official said the most serious involved the January death of a patient whose heart monitor alarm had been inadvertently turned off. The government sent the hospital a detailed report, but that report does not become public until later this month, after Mass. General has submitted a plan to correct the problems, which it must do by March 15.
