New Protocol After Recent Hospital Death

Mercy Medical Center is implementing  new procedures after the recent death of a mother who gave birth.  

The  Massachusetts Department of Public Health says the hospital was placed  in a status of immediate jeopardy following the death, which was removed  earlier this year.  

Such a designation can result in a hospital losing  Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements.  

Corrective measures included  firing an obstetrician who was not named that demonstrated unprofessional behavior,  according to a Boston Globe report.
