Rochester, N.Y. - Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks said Monroe Community Hospital has gotten a clean bill of health from the State Health Department.
Last month, the state handed the county a list of deficiencies and asked for them to be corrected.
This, after the former director of the hospital, Todd Spring, was accused of removing a wheelchair from an elderly patient for several days as punishment for smoking outside.
Brooks later fired Spring, saying he "failed to meet a standard of excellence."
On Thursday, Brooks said the state made a post-survey visit to Monroe Community Hospital earlier this week and determined the facility corrected the deficiencies and is in substantial compliance with State and Federal requirements.
In a statement, Brooks said she is pleased the state recognized Monroe County's progress.
"The State's determination that MCH is in substantial compliance with both State and Federal requirements means that the Hospital has successfully taken action to address an unfortunate and isolated incident, and that quality and continuity of care has remained strong during the transitional period," said Brooks.
Brooks said she will continue to hold regular meetings of MCH's Governing Body to monitor continued compliance
