State Clears Omaha’s Children’s Hospital

State Clears Omaha’s Children’s Hospital

Omaha, NE.—In an unexpected development, the state has cleared Children’s Hospital in Omaha of any wrongdoing involving charges of poor patient care by one of its doctors.

According to a letter from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, three major allegations were investigated and “none… were substantiated” during a recent surprise visit.

The hospital is accused of failing to provide quality medical care, looking the other way when a physician failed to follow medical guidelines and ignoring a doctor’s character and competence during the hiring process.

According to a lawsuit filed against the hospital, Children’s suspended two surgeons after they complained to the administration that a third surgeon’s poor decisions led to the death of a 7-month-old during a recent operation.

Children’s has not commented on the specifics in the lawsuit but did say the allegations are not true.

Once again, the state is standing with the hospital.
