Hospital under fire for alleged 'makeshift beauty salon' in ward for high-risk newborns

Staffers at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center are being criticized this week after allegedly participating in a makeshift beauty salon in the ward for high-risk newborns, the Los Angeles Times reports. Nurses and doctors in the ward would have procedures like manicures, eyebrow waxings and nail filings performed on top of medical equipment, according to complaints made to the facility's accrediting commission. "The smell of acetone permeates the back area of the NICU," one complaint read. Another complaint told of an infectious disease doctor who received a French manicure on top of a high frequency ventilator. Article
