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.
