The one hospital in Southeast D.C. (in the... wait for it... poor part of town) is so awful that it's about to lose its accreditation from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
The commission issued a preliminary denial of Greater Southeast's accreditation in March. It cited problems with blood transfusions, infection control, the clinical lab, quality assurance programs and training and screening of workers and physicians.The hospital reported three erroneous blood transfusions in the past year. Three! Is it that hard to match up "Type A" with fucking "Type A"? I think even I could do it!
Oh, and the hospital's parent company is bankrupt. Good luck guys.
