Los Angeles Times

In a written response to allegations of substandard care at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center’s neonatal intensive care unit, Los Angeles County health officials said they found “little about the allegations” to be correct.

County health officials addressing an anonymous complaint to an accreditation agency said seven of 11 allegations made could not be substantiated. Officials found that hospital staff provided and received cosmetic services at Olive View, but said “the investigation has dispelled the claim that an organized cosmetic operation on the scale of a ‘beauty salon’ has existed in the NICU.”
