Planned Parenthood of Arizona is disputing state health investigators' allegations that several record-keeping and patient-care shortcomings were found during a February search of its Glendale abortion clinic.
A Health Services Department "statement of deficiencies" report obtained by The Associated Press lays out several alleged problems found by investigators. They include not providing required licensing and certification records for two nurses and a health aide and not performing required laboratory tests on a patient. The clinic also didn't properly monitor the woman's vital signs in the recovery room.
But Planned Parenthood President Bryan Howard said clinic staff had all the required licenses and certifications. He also the patient was properly monitored and had the proper tests performed.
Planned Parenthood is seeking to have the allegations dismissed.
