Inspectors Find Quality Lapse at UC-Irvine Medical Center
In a surprise inspection last week, state investigators working on behalf of CMS issued an "immediate jeopardy" warning to UC-Irvine Medical Center for two deficiencies in medication management. Medical center officials said they already have submitted plans to address the problem.
- "UC-Irvine Medical Center Ordered to 'Improve Medication Management'" (Hennessy-Fiske, Los Angeles Times, 3/12).
- "UCI Hospital Out of Compliance Again" (Perkes, Orange County Register, 3/11).
