Nurses failed to follow sanitary guidelines, equipment was poorly maintained and walls and chairs were spotted with blood, report finds. Medicare funding could be at stake.
Regulators found blood-spotted chairs and walls, nurses who failed to change gloves or wash their hands and equipment that was rusted or held together by tape in a surprise November inspection of UC Irvine's dialysis center according to letters and reports obtained by The Times on Monday. The findings, federal regulators have warned, could jeopardize Medicare funding for the facility that serves about 120 patients.
