Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPPA, prohibits specific
information about the incident from being released.
The hospital has until May 9 to develop an action plan showing the department it has taken steps to prevent something similar from happening in the future. If the hospital does not develop a satisfactory plan in that time, it could lose its ability to accept Medicare.
ProMedica says there is no reason for patients to believe anything will change for them. The company says Flower Hospital will develop the plan and work with Health and Human Services to remedy the issue.
ProMedica released the following statement on the matter:
We understand the seriousness of this situation and are fully cooperating with the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services. We will submit an action plan to address the issues raised and meet regulatory requirements.
During this time, we want to assure patients and the community that ProMedica Flower Hospital is fully operational and that we remain focused on providing the highest quality patient care possible.
Health and Human Services will also send a team to the hospital to verify the changes have been made.
