State hospitals renovate for patient safety
Posted on Wednesday, January 11th, 2012
Ten state hospitals will undergo minor renovations in order to improve patient safety, says the Department of State Health Services.
More than $100,000 will be spent on retrofitting over 300 doors of treatment rooms with two foot by three foot windows in order to prevent patients from being abused by medical staff. The agency says that the transparency will make the hospitals safer for everyone.
These renovations come in the midst of two high profile allegations against state doctors who are accused of sexually assaulting patients in their offices.
In the rooms that cannot be fitted with windows, cameras will be installed.
