Safety records of surgery centers found lacking

My lede:

Ambulatory surgical centers’ safety practices are under scrutiny as a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that problems in infection control are common at such centers.

The study came on the heels of a 28-count criminal indictment filed June 4 against Las Vegas gastroenterologist Dipak K. Desai, MD, and two of his endoscopy clinic nurse anesthetists. They were charged in connection with unsafe injection practices that led to a 2008 hepatitis C outbreak infecting 115 patients in southern Nevada.

The whole shebang.
