Rosebud Hospital Diverts Surgical and Obstetric Patients to Other Facilities

KEVN Black Hills Fox reports that Rosebud IHS Hospital has to divert obstetric and surgical patients to other facilities because of the death of a key staff memeber.  Patients are being sent to facilities about 50 miles away.  This comes after being forced to close the ER due to failures found by the IHS in December.  Hospital officials say they will be able to dedicate more resources to re-opening their emergency room.  

For more information about the IHS, visit the Knowledge Network news archives.  You can also read more about Native American health in the Knowledge Network resource page.
