Severe citation for SB hospital
San Bernardino Sun

The state’s Public Health Department on Wednesday announced an $80,000 fine and a “severe” citation slapped on Community Hospital of San Bernardino, after finding that a nursing facility resident died in 2008 because staffers failed to ensure proper assisted breathing. The hospital received an “AA” Citation – the state’s most severe – and the fine after an investigation concluded that a man who was admitted July 27, 2007, with emphysema and asthmatic bronchitis died the following February.
