COLUMBUS, Ohio--Yesterday, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) held a hearing on the $40,000 fine that ODH levied against Capital Care Network for failing to follow their own emergency procedures. In April 2017, a doctor at Capital Care Network was concerned that the woman's bowel may have been perforated. In such a situation, according to Capital Care Network's policies, 911 should be called and the woman and her medical records should be sent to the hospital. Instead, a Capitcal Care Network employee ushered the woman out the back door and into their personal vehicle, without any of the woman's medical records. They dropped her off and didn't even wait to find out if she was okay.
The following statement can be attributed to Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life:
Capital Care Network has operated recklessly for far too long. Their lack of health and safety standards could have cost a woman her life. If Capital Care Network can't afford to pay the $40,000 fine for health and safety violations, they should be forced to close, like every other business would have to do in this situation. Abortion businesses shouldn't get any special treatment.
