As allegations of poor medical care continue to be hurled against Mercy Medical Center, News 12 Long Island has learned a national review board has recently found problems with the hospital.
The Joint Commission is a medical standards group that certifies hospitals. In a recent assessment, the board gave Mercy 22 requirements for improvement, or RFIs. Some of the RFIs include problems with medical reconciliation, medication labeling, consent forms and hand hygiene, according to the survey.
Ilene Corina, who sits on the commission, could not confirm any survey results, but says when RFIs are given, ?it means there is room for improvement.?
Mercy refused to address questions on specific RFIs, but released a statement saying ?Mercy has developed and begun to immediately implement plans to correct items of concern cited in the survey."
