Deficiencies at Providence St. Joseph

Following complaints to the Los Angeles Public Health dept. by Hospital-acquired Infection Survivor Alicia Cole, CDPH officials investigated the prominent San Fernando Valley facility and cited the hospital for failing to follow its policy on monitoring and controlling hospital-acquired infections.
A second survey 5 months later found the facility failed to ensure the Operating Room policies and procedures were implemented and enforced for aseptic and sterile techniques, infection control surveillance, housekeeping procedures and acceptable operating room attire in accordance with acceptable standards of medical practice.
Complaint Intake number: CA00129869
