Metropolitan State Hospital for the mentally ill and UCLA Medical Center have been cited for "serious" violations of worker safety laws after state investigators discovered cancer-causing asbestos debris in crawl spaces and equipment rooms at both facilities.

In a spot-check of nine hospital emergency rooms that recently reported themselves closed to ambulance traffic because of overcrowding, Los Angeles County health officials found that four had empty beds and were apparently closed without justification. There appear to be various reasons for the inappropriate closures, including ignorance of county regulations that define when a hospital may temporarily close, said Virginia Price Hasting, the county's chief of paramedics and trauma hospitals.

UC Irvine's new dean of the College of Medicine said in an interview Monday that he would like to see an "ethics institute" established as an adjunct to the medical school. "I think there are major problems that doctors face every day that have to do with the ethics of medicine," said Dr. Edward J. Quilligan. "I would dearly love to see a major ethics institute located right here at this university. I think it's a logical place for one, because I think (ethics) is a major area of medicine."
