State regulators have fined six Southern California hospitals for healthcare violations that included an emergency room nurse's sexual assault on a patient at Chapman Medical Center in Orange. The penalties, announced Friday by the California Department of Public Health, included the eighth assessed on Southwest Healthcare System in Murrieta, which has been fined more often than any other hospital in the state since financial penalties were adopted in 2007. Southwest's latest administrative fine of $100,000, the largest the state can impose, involved a nurse's failure to recognize and take emergency action to deal with signs of fetal distress during a patient's labor.

An article published this week says a new study of emphysema patients at Chapman Medical Center may be the first step toward federal approval for a controversial treatment that the federal government banned for Medicare coverage last year. The study, published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, explains why some emphysema patients breathe more easily after lung reduction surgery.

Controversial lung surgeries that draw hundreds of desperate emphysema sufferers each year to Orange County specialists no longer will be covered by Medicare, until the federal government is satisfied the procedures are safe and effective. The announcement has forced at least two hospitals in the county with growing surgical programs for emphysema patients to notify scores of seriously ill people across the country that their scheduled operations must be put off indefinitely.
