Report finds US hospital failed to protect infants from abuse

Whoohoo US and its capitalist medicine.
Report finds US hospital failed to protect infants from abuse
A federal investigation has found a Wisconsin hospital did not do enough to protect newborn infants from abuse, a report obtained by US media says.

Five infants were found with unexplained injuries, ranging from bruising to skull and arm fractures.

Documents show the hospital did not take action over the suspected abuse until last month when two babies were found with bruises.

An internal review found two similar cases in 2017 and another in January.

Investigators for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) told the hospital in a letter last month that the issue was "so serious that it constitutes an immediate threat to patient health safety", according to the Wisconsin State Journal newspaper, citing the report.

The federal agency threatened to cancel its contract with the hospital.

UnityPoint Health-Meriter Hospital, located in the state's capital of Madison, said it is co-operating with authorities and implementing a new safety plan.

A nurse who was found to have been caring for several of the infants involved has been suspended from the hospital, according to the newspaper.

I must say that if I condemned the whole American Health Care system by this one example I would accept being called a stupid, ignorant twat .

What in the fuck does this have to do with political philosophy???
In a single hospital in a single U.S. state you show that a few baby's MIGHT have been purposely injured instead of accidently.
Your point is what?

The babies injuries could have been caused by a breach birth. That baby has to come out one way or the other.

Yeah, my middle son was a breach birth. Poor kid came out looking like he'd just gone about 6 rounds with Boom-Boom Mancini.
