Around New Haven | YNNH fined $8,000 by state

Connecticut is charging Yale-New Haven Hospital $8,000, the New Haven Register reported. The infractions against nurses — discovered during visits from the state’s Department of Public Health from August 2007 to March 2008 — include ignoring bed sores, failing to complete records, incorrectly administering medicine and holding a patient against her will. But Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Vin Petrini told the register that the hospital will improve after the state’s comments. “We welcome the state’s input as another opportunity to improve. We take it seriously,” he said.
