Pine Ridge hospital fumbled man's care before death, documents say


November 7, 2017

A government agency’s recent decision to cut off Medicare and Medicaid payments to the Indian Health Service hospital in Pine Ridge was motivated by the case of a patient who died the day after being brought to the hospital’s emergency department, according to documents released to the Journal.

The documents, released Monday, say the diabetic male patient was brought to the hospital by ambulance at 12:22 p.m. Oct. 16 with high blood sugar.
