An unannounced inspection by state health investigators which resulted in the suspension of a South Carolina Planned Parenthood facility this past summer also revealed how aborted babies were stored in a biohazard freezer. The horrific details, captured in a SC state health inspection report are eerily similar to those captured by the Center for Medical Progress while undercover at a Houston Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

In that video, Center for Medical Progress (CMP) “buyers” were taken into Planned Parenthood’s back pathology room where they ask to view any “fresh specimens” i.e. aborted babies. With a BIG smile on her face, the Planned Parenthood assistant told CMP, “We had a really long day and they are all mixed up in a bag,” she states as she giggles. And then they tell CMP that they keep the “specimens” frozen.

The inspection report from the State of South Carolina lays out a similar system where aborted children are kept in a freezer at a Planned Parenthood in Columbia. The gruesome details are documented in the August 31,2015 on site inspection the Bureau of Health Facilities Licensing performed at Planned Parenthood of South Atlantic on Middleburg Drive.

The unannounced inspection at the Columbia Planned Parenthood was requested by Governor Nikki Haley and conducted by the South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Bureau of Health Facilities Licensing and Bureau of Land and Waste Management to determine compliance with state laws.

During the walk through of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic investigators identified two locations where biohazard waste was stored. The first one, although it contained bio-hazardous waste, did not contain any fetal tissue. But, when inspectors asked if there were any other places where “POC’s” or products of conception were kept, Planned Parenthood staff replied, “Yes, in the POC room in the freezer.”

South Carolina Planned Parenthood abortion freezer inspection fetal tissue

According to the document obtained by Saynsumthn, inspectors followed the Planned Parenthood staff in the “POC room” and opened the “upright freezer which had a biohazard sticker in the top right hand corner.” Inside the freezer were several metal shelves lined with blue disposable pads. One shelf had a large red plastic biohazard bag that was tied with numerous (in excess of 20) smaller red plastic bags, the report stated.

Planned Parenthood staffers told inspectors that “individual products of conception” or as pro-lifers rightly describe them, aborted preborn children, are placed in a smaller red biohazard bag after examination by the physician i.e. abortionist. They are then placed in the large bag in the freezer, the inspection report notes.

Inspectors then asked Planned Parenthood staffers what the next step would be for the “fetal tissue” or preborn aborted children in the freezer. Abortion clinic staffers told inspectors that on the day of “medical waste” “pick up” that the large bag would be placed in a cardboard box in the “biohazard room” and sealed and labeled where a manifest would be generated. It would then be passed off to the “transporter” or the medical waste pick up company.

The storing of aborted children in freezers until they can be “transported” was also described in detail by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast when, in an unprecedented move CMP undercover investigators were able to film what takes place in these “POC labs.” A transcript of an April 9, 2015 conversation CMP had with Melissa Farrell, Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast read in part:

    “After the physician has confirmed the tissue correlates with gestational age, tissue is placed in a biohazard container and gets discarded into a single container and then is placed in the freezer. Anything after 16 weeks is immediately placed in the freezer after the procedure. And it is all sent away once a week for incineration. So that’s kind of the scope.”

In another portion of the conversation the Planned Parenthood staffer told CMP:

    “Under a sample acquisition protocol where everyone that’s coming in gets approached, not just African-American or whatever, everyone gets approached about donating fetal tissue, maybe we can even think, and I recognize that a lot of this has to be fresh, but maybe even banking, a tissue banking part, that we have it built into the consent form-protocol-in the event that you don’t have a use-first trimester, you don’t have a use for it currently, you saw the refrigerator freezer space we have, we have plenty of space. We can store it, and then if you have a need, because some researchers start with frozen specimens or preserved specimens first, we could look at doing that as well.”

Planned Parenthood inspection Jenny Black

The storing of aborted babies inside freezers, as creepy as it sounds, does not appear to be a violation of health laws.

However, in addition to the way the Columbia, South Carolina Planned Parenthood stored the aborted fetuses, the document did list a host of health violations found by the South Carolina State Health Inspectors and detailed them in a September 11, 2015 letter addressed to Planned Parenthood CEO Jenny Black.

Those violations include the following:

    Documentation on personal background information on 2 staff members was not available for review.
    The facility did not have documentation on training in infection control for 2 staff members.
    The facility did not comply with a provision of the Women’s Right to Know Act…In 5 of 25 medical records reviewed, the record documented that an abortion was performed sooner than the required 60 minutes after an ultrasound.
    Planned Parenthood did not adhere to and follow provisions for tissue examination and disposal and did not have a written policy and procedure regarding registration of fetal death or death certificates.
    Planned Parenthood’s emergency drug cart did not have a listing of contents on the cart.
    Expired medications were stored in the patient care areas and pharmacy.
    Products of conception resulting from abortion procedures were not managed and properly disposed of by incineration according to regulations.
    Several abortion records involving minors did not include the names of their mother or father.
    In 25 out of 25 of the medical records reviewed by inspectors, the names of clinical assistants in attendance during abortion procedures was not documented in the record.
    In 4 of the 25 medical records reviewed, abortions were not reported to the Office of Vital Records within the required 7 days but were reported between 13 and 33 days. And in one of the records reviewed, the record did not document that the abortion was reported at all.
    Sterile gloves were stored and mixed with non-sterile supplies including non-sterile examination gloves .
    Waste meeting the definition of “infectious waste” was not managed and properly disposed of by incineration.

Planned Parenthood COuth Atlantic abortion clinic suspended

State officials then suspended the license of the South Carolina Planned Parenthood facility. Despite previous claims from CEO Jenny Black that monetary penalties were not issued, the documents shows that Planned Parenthood was fined $7500.00 and ordered to submit a plan of correction.

According to the Island Packet:

    Planned Parenthood paid a $7,500 penalty for 21 cited violations and submitted correction plans by the Sept. 28 deadline but asked DHEC to reconsider some of the violations, putting the suspension on hold…DHEC cleared Planned Parenthood’s Columbia clinic on Nov. 6, and the organization withdrew its request, Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Heigel said.

Health reports reveal 7 ambulance calls and no doc after surgery at Illinois abortion clinic

Posted in 911 calls, Abortion clinic, Abortion Clinic Inspections, Abortionist, Abortionist Investigated with tags , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2015 by saynsumthn

According to the Chicago Tribune, Illinois state officials have moved to revoke the license of an abortion clinic.

Albamay Medical Center FPA

According to the state’s March 10 notice of revocation, the Illinois Department of Public Health also fined the Albany Medical Surgical Center abortion clinic $40,000 for several violations that are threatening to the public interest, health, safety or welfare.

But there were other violations found including an abortion doctor who left the clinics while patients were recovering from surgery and several ambulance calls fro medical emergencies.

From the report:

    Albany Medical Surgical Center houses one of three Chicago abortion clinics operated by Family Planning Associates Medical Group.

    Allison_Cowett-e1333144453671

    The medical group’s associate medical director, Dr. Allison Cowett, said Albany and Family Planning Associates are separate entities and that Family Planning Associates has not been threatened with license revocation. The building housing the clinic is owned by Albany, Cowett said.

    In January, a separate state inspection assessing the clinic’s medical practices found two violations of regulations: not having a doctor present on one occasion when patients were recovering from surgery, and failure to report several ambulance transfers of patients to hospitals.

    Both violations were mentioned in the notice of license revocation, but they did not contribute to the $40,000 fine.

    The state levied a separate penalty of $10,000 related to the doctor’s absence; it was later reduced to $7,000 in a compromise agreement between Albany and the state.

    The January inspection also found that the clinic had failed to report seven ambulance transfers of clinic patients to the hospital in the first three quarters of 2014 and that an employee said transports had not been entered on official reports for four years.

Abortionist to pro-life protester “I’ll give you two weeks before my lawyer gets you”

In a video uploaded to YouTube, abortionist James Gengelbach tells a pro-lifer outside the Bread and Roses abortion clinic in Clearwater, Florida that he is not allowed to take and or post his picture online.

Abortion Doc Bread and Roses

Hey Deb, police told us last week – you cannot take my picture in the workplace,” Gengelbach says.

If you’re here again next week, I’m call’n the cops,” the abortionists threatens, “Any pictures you’ve taken and put on websites have to take them down,” he says.

He then tells her, “I’ll give you two weeks before my lawyer gets you, OK?

Bread and Roses abortion clinic does abortions through 14 weeks of pregnancy.

Bread and Roses abortion

The abortion clinic administrator is Dorothy Brown and the clinic is owned by Diana Thomas under the corporate name INDIAN ROCKS WOMAN’S CENTER, INC.

The clinic had been previously owned by Jodell Nauert who inherited the abortion clinic chain from her abortionist husband George when he died in 2007.

Nauert is a singer in a country/rock band called Angelus.

According to the Agency for Healthcare Administration, which regulates abortion clinics in the state, the 1560 South Highland Ave, Clearwater location was fined $200.00 last year for failing to submit a requited monthly report of abortions performed on time.

Bread and Roses fined by ACA

In 2010, the abortion clinic was cited under the name INDIAN ROCKS WOMAN’S CENTER, INC for the exact same thing.

Oddly enough, it also happened in 2009 and again in 2008.

Maybe the abortionists should get the clinic he works for to clean up their own act first before insisting that pro-lifers comply with “the rules.”

Just say’n that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

According to the website www.abortiondocs.org Gengelbach also works at the Audre Rapoport Women’s Health Center-Planned Parenthood.

The Osteopath’s other locations on record at the state Medical Board website include:

The Altamonte Springs, All Women’s Health Center abortion clinic at 431 MAITLAND AVE ALTAMONTE SPRINGS,FL32701.

Planned Parenthood Fined for Health and Safety Violations – actions taken against more Abortion clinics

Ohio Right to Life has issued this release:

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Today, Ohio Right to Life obtained documentation of enforcement actions against three abortion facilities by the Ohio Department of Health. Among them is a $25,000 fine issued to Planned Parenthood of Bedford Heights due to severe violations of health and safety standards. Such violations include the facility’s failure to adhere to infection control policies, including exposed urine samples. Other health inspector discoveries include:

no experienced director of nursing on staff
improper storage of eight containers of human tissue
3-month overdue follow-up documentation for hospitalized abortion patient with perforated uterus
incomplete documentation for abortion patient who was hospitalized for bleeding
use of expired and undocumented chemicals and equipment used on surgical suction hoses

Further enforcement actions by the health department were taken against Northeast Ohio Women’s Center, which was denied a license to practice surgical abortions due to multiple health and safety violations, including failure to properly train staff, lack of a director of nursing, and expired medications and pregnancy tests.

PP Bedford Heights

“We’re deeply concerned, though admittedly unsurprised, that multiple abortion facilities are jeopardizing the lives and health of women,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “The real war on women is being waged everyday in these unsafe and unsanitary abortion mills. These reports shock the conscience and reaffirm our resolve to protect life from Ohio’s abortion industry.”

This week, ODH also issued an administrative order to close the last remaining abortion facility in Toledo. Capital Care Network of Toledo (CCN) was unable to secure a transfer agreement with any Toledo-area hospital which caused health officials to begin the closure process last year. CCN attempted to enter into a transfer agreement with an out-of-state hospital at the University of Michigan. Because the hospital is located 52 miles away from CCN, the Department of Health ruled that it does not meet health and safety standards.

Capital Care Network of Toledo

“Without Capital Care Network, life in Toledo will be safer for women and children” said Gonidakis. “This week, our government assured all of us that women’s health and patient safety is priority number one. It is deeply troubling that some people are advocating for this illegal operation to remain open, putting women’s lives at risk.”

In Alabama, “domestic relations” violations can range from non-payment of alimony to violation of a protection order.

Since 1996, Lopez has been the subject of 14 court cases, including two criminal cases filed in 1998 and 2008.

LopezCourtCases

The abortion clinic where Lopez works, the Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives (AWCRA), has been cited for serious health code violations at least seven times between 2001 and 2013, with multiple violations for each deficiency report filed.

Most recently, a survey of AWCRA was conducted on January 8-9, 2013, where inspectors found unsanitary conditions, expired drugs, and an uncalibrated ultrasound machine. AWCRA failed to clean medical equipment – including procedure tables – between patients. One abortionist failed to provide women with an opportunity to view an ultrasound of their babies prior to an abortion, as required by law.

Other violations dating back years included:

• Staff giving injections without wearing gloves.
• More expired drugs.
• Failure to properly prepare IV medications in accordance with medical standards. (Multiple occurrences.)
• Improper labeling and storage of pre-drawn drug syringes. (Multiple occurrences.)
• Administration of controlled substances without specific doctor’s orders.
• Failure to implement a required Quality Improvement Program.
• No documentation that three abortionists had the required training and experience to conduct abortions.
• Failure to properly monitor women in recovery.
• Failure to document fetal age or possibility of viability prior to abortions.
• Women calling back with complications (such as heavy bleeding) did not have access to professional staff members.
• Lack of a required infection control committee.
• Missing drugs
• Failure to log complications, such as possible perforations, heavy bleeding, or hospitalizations that resulted from an abortion procedure.
• A botched 28-week abortion — misdiagnosed as 20 weeks — that required emergency hospitalization.

Planned Parenthood: Abnormal bleeding after surgical abortion not unusual nor unanticipated

Planned Parenthood Keystone had a novel excuse for failing to report the ambulance transfer of a patient to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as required by law.

plannedparenthoodoffice8 Orange CA 2009 (1)

When DOH inspected Planned Parenthood Keystone’s Allentown abortion clinic on February 27, 2014, it was surprised to learn a patient had begun hemorrhaging after her abortion on March 15, 2013, and taken to the hospital by ambulance.

This was a surprising because DOH is supposed to get a report from any medical facility within 24 hours after such an occurrence, and it didn’t in this case.

Planned Parenthood’s excuse?

Its Patient Safety Officer and Associate Medical Director “determined that this event did not constitute a serious event or incident…. Abnormal bleeding after a surgical abortion is not unusual nor is it unanticipated,” quoting from the report.

PP Allentown Keystone

The Health Department report reads: the patient presented to the facility on March 15, 2013, for an elective in-clinic abortion. CF1 performed internal suction and documented no products of conception were found. CF1 requested an ultrasound be performed. Further review revealed CF1 documented the patient’s uterus was empty. CF1 completed a second internal suction of the patient’s uterus. CF1 documented no products of conception were found and requested a second ultrasound be performed. CF1 documented no products of conception were found. Continued review of MR6 revealed the patient began with excessive bleeding with noticeable large clots. CF1 instructed CF2 to administer Methergine (medication used to manage hemorrhage) 0.2 milligrams (mg) intramuscularly (IM). The patient’s excessive bleeding continued and CF1 instructed EMP3 to call 911 to request ambulance transport of MR6 to the hospital’s emergency department (ED).

Interview with EMP2 and EMP3 on February 27, 2014, at approximately 2:00 PM confirmed CF1 performed internal suction two times on MR6, and each time there were no products of
conception found. Continued interview confirmed the patient had excessive bleeding, was given Methergine, and transferred to the hospital ED for excessive bleeding following an in-clinic abortion.

A request was made of EMP1 and EMP2 on February 27, 2014, for the facility’s internal investigation and the facility’s report of MR6’s transfer from the facility to an acute care hospital emergency department. No investigation or facility report to the Department or Patient Safety Authority were provided. Phone interview with EMP1 on February 27, 2014, at approximately 2:15 PM revealed if the facility did submit this occurrence, it would have been submitted as an incident and not a serious event.”

In 2013, Planned Parenthood of Northeast, Mid-Penn & Bucks County and Planned Parenthood of Central Pennsylvania merged and the new entity is called Planned Parenthood Keystone.

According to their website, Planned Parenthood Keystone (PPKey) serves 37 counties in Pennsylvania

According to a report they uploaded online the Planned Parenthood of Northeast, Mid-Penn, and Bucks County Planned Parenthood Central medical director is James Anasti, MD.

Abortion capital fails to inspect abortion clinics

Posted in Abortion clinic closed by state, Abortion Clinic Inspections with tags , , , , on April 7, 2014 by saynsumthn

The state Health Department is failing to inspect many of New York’s abortion clinics — with some facilities escaping scrutiny for more than a decade, bombshell documents obtained by The Post reveal.

Health inspectors regulate 25 diagnostic and treatment clinics and surgery centers that provide abortion services — though pro-choice advocates say there are 225 abortion service providers in New York state.

Eight of the 25 clinics were never inspected over the 2000-12 span, five were inspected just once, and eight were inspected only twice or three times — meaning once every four or six years.

A total of just 45 inspections were conducted at all 25 facilities during the 12-year period.

By comparison, city eateries are inspected every year and graded, while a new law requires tanning salons to undergo inspections at least once every other year.

Meanwhile, state officials — citing prior threats and violence against abortion providers — refused to identify the names and locations of the clinics it did inspect.
