Pine Ridge leader thankful for hospital inspections


SIOUX FALLS (AP) — The top leader on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation told tribal members Tuesday that he is thankful for federal inspections that have uncovered serious quality-of care-deficiencies at a government-run hospital serving the community.

Oglala Sioux Tribe President John Yellow Bird Steele made the remarks during a radio address just days after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ordered the facility's administrators to either agree to make substantial changes or lose its Medicare and Medicaid funding. The ultimatum came after the agency's inspectors found deficiencies in the hospital's emergency department.
