"CMS was gracious in their recognition of the Christmas holidays, and they have decided to wait until the first week of January to issue their official report," [Hospital board Chairman Troy deChabert-Schuster] said. "Once they have issued their report, we have 10 days to respond. For this reason, they decided to wait so all of us could enjoy the Christmas holidays."

This doesn't look good. It seems almost certain that CMS expects a corrective response. If the hospital received an "all clear," I would imagine that an extension (allowing for time to respond) would have been unnecessary. Interesting.

The accreditation was received:

"At the same time, the letter said there were still deficiencies that will require a plan of correction by Jan. 14. Okolo said the hospital now must sustain the corrective actions."

Just as I predicted, this is far from an all-clear. How significant are the "deficiencies" that remain? Does anyone have a copy of the report?

It's not unusual for hospitals to have deficiencies. There are hundreds of deficiency reports filed every year. There is a public database out there. But probably too early for this one to be online yet.

Of course. But we should keep track of the deficiencies that remain in a hospital that was reprimanded only a year ago for butchering patients and infants. Inquiring minds would like to know.

... a hospital that was reprimanded only a year ago for butchering patients and infants ...

Such hyperbole is sadly hilarious.

Monogram what are you talking about? Butchering patients and infants? I would love to know why you would say that.

We have just booked our trip to STX to have our son see the fine doctors at San Luis' Dept of Child Butchery. Pretty excited.

I don't disagree. The situation was appalling. CMS report should be available online soon.

Thank you for the information Alana. It is terrible that they had those problems. We can only hope that things have improved. It sounds like they have.
