Description

KOMU-TV investigation revealed two Jefferson City, Mo, hospitals were in trouble after violating several regulations. St. Mary's Health Center had been cited by the state's bureau of facility regulation for a number of problems ranging from patients developing severe bedsores and losing large amounts of weight during admission, to a nurse who refused to cooperate with superiors during surgery and needed a reminder during a heart operation of how some of the heart valves work. At Capital Region Medical Center, the federal government had uncovered instances of patient-dumping.
