Ohio hospital will keep Medicare contract after investigation into patient safety issues

Sequel Pomegranate, an acute care hospital and psychiatric facility in Columbus, Ohio, is no longer at risk of losing its Medicare contract, according to WBNS.

CMS cited the facility earlier this year for patient safety issues, including failing to conduct physical assessments of some patients after an assault or injury and failing to conduct suicide risk assessments on patients within the first eight hours of being admitted.

Sequel Pomegranate submitted a correction plan to CMS. After performing a follow-up survey, CMS determined the hospital is in compliance with Medicare requirements, according to the report.
