State regulators to inspect Olive View hospital
Los Angeles Times

State regulators said Tuesday that they plan to inspect Olive View- UCLA Medical Center as soon as possible, following admissions by hospital and county officials that they did not know the neonatal intensive care unit had been downgraded for more than a year and a half.

County health officials announced a shift in policy Tuesday, even as they continued to say the county-run facility in Sylmar was allowed to care for seriously ill babies despite what the state called a “critical medical staffing deficiency.”
