Feds back away from UC Davis hospital funding cuts

By From page A2 | January 16, 2013

DAVIS (AP) — Regulators have backed away from a threat to cut federal funding to the UC Davis Medical Center after a follow-up inspection determined the hospital is now complying with patient safety and care rules.

The public hospital has been under scrutiny since a scandal over a neurosurgeon who conducted experiments on dying brain cancer patients.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services inspected the medical center and determined hospital leaders and staff failed to intervene or raise questions about the experimental treatments.

The regulators warned the hospital’s Medicare funding was in jeopardy.

A second inspection in December examined general deficiencies.
