A Madison hospital won't lose access to the Medicare program after the completion of several federal investigations.
UnityPoint Health-Meriter has been cleared by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. The first inspection by C-M-S was brought on by allegations of abuse in Meriter's neo-natal intensive care unit. Five newborns were found with bruised arms and legs, including one with a broken arm. The license for the nurse involved has been revoked. Madison police are investigating the abuse reports.
