Yet another safe abortion "clinic":

"The facility did not ensure the presence of a registered nurse in the operating room during all invasive and operative procedures.

The facility did not ensure the presence of a registered nurse to direct and supervise the nursing personnel and the nursing care of patients.

The facility did not ensure that either of the two physicians on staff have and maintain surgical practice privileges with an Illinois-licensed hospital.

The facility did not have a written agreement with a laboratory that possesses a valid clinical laboratory improvement amendment certificate to perform any lab work that is not performed at the facility. The notice also assesses a fine of $15,000 against the facility."

I wonder how long ago the last inspection was done.

And here's my answer:

""Considering the utter disregard for basic medical standards found by Public Health personnel, we hope they won't wait another 14 years to reinspect this clinic," said Peter Breen, executive director of the Chicago-based Thomas More Society."

"Lack of resources led to the Rockford clinic going without a full health inspection between 1996 and 2011, Arnold of the health department acknowledged."
