MISSOURI: More Bad News at Cox Health

Posted on May 13, 2011


MISSOURI: The Springfield News-Leader finally went out and got themselves a real  live investigative reporter who hasn’t lived in town long enough to care about rocking the boat. Sarah Okeson has the whole town buzzing with this explosive piece about a patient suicide that occured in Cox Health’s psychiatric unit in December. The rub? The staff falsified records as to the circumstances surrounding the death. Six employees have been terminated – but nothing has happened to the board members who put staffing policies in place. That will take many many more investigative reports.  Read the entire story here. Kuddos to Sarah Okeson. We need 10,000 Sarah Okesons covering local hospitals across the US.
