UCLA Daily-Bruin

Last week, anonymous complaints surfaced that accused staff members at the Olive View-UCLA Medical Center of running a beauty salon in the hospital’s intensive care unit for newborn infants. The complaints were filed with the Joint Commission, a private institution that accredits hospitals. The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services began an investigation into the matter last week and so far has put two staffers on paid administrative leave, said Michael Wilson, a spokesman for the Department of Health Services.
