State cites Jackson surgery center over problems

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Officials at Teton Outpatient Services say they have fixed problems at a surgery center after being cited by health inspectors over an outdated surgical suction system.

The suction system is used to help doctors see what they are doing.

Inspectors found the problems in February while responding to a complaint. Surgeries for patients who could be at risk were canceled or rescheduled.

Teton Outpatient Services Administrator Joanne Robichau said in an email sent to the Jackson Hole News & Guide (http://tinyurl.com/7p4ks2g ) the problems found by inspectors were all fixed and the work cleared by the government.
