13 Nov Clinic where Joan Rivers went into cardiac arrest ‘failed to identify deteriorating vital signs.’
It was a tragedy of errors.
In a blistering report, the feds ripped the Upper East Side clinic where comedian Joan Rivers went into cardiac arrest.
The report concluded that Yorkville Endoscopy “failed to ensure that patient care services are provided in a manner that protects the health and safety of all patients.”
The biggest blunder cited in the document was that physicians in charge of Rivers’ care “failed to identify deteriorating vital signs and provide timely intervention during the procedure.” Rivers died at a hospital a week after her procedure.
The report was prepared by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
