Manicures for hospital staff never ‘on the scale of a beauty salon,’ officials say
Los Angeles Times

In a written response to allegations of substandard care and other violations 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, according to a copy of the response reviewed by The Times.

Health officials were required to respond by Monday to two anonymous complaints filed earlier this month with the Joint Commission, a private, nonprofit agency that accredits the county-run hospital in Sylmar. A spokesman for the Department of Health Services and county counsel declined to release or discuss the response, citing medical privacy.
