FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BROMAN REFUSES TO ACCEPT MEDIOCRITY IN DMC INVESTIGATION
DETROIT, MI (September 16, 2016) – The Detroit News reported today that “State investigators took no immediate steps to ensure instruments are currently being cleaned properly.”
The story quotes a statement from Jason Moon, communications director for the state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA): “The findings do show systemic problems with proper processing of instruments, but not to the nature that poses an immediate risk to ongoing surgeries.”
William Broman, Republican candidate for State Representative in District 1, criticized the lack of immediate action from LARA, saying “even in the instance that there is ‘no risk’ to surgeries, Detroit’s children and parents deserve better than mediocrity. Have you seen the picture of the instrument with bone fragments that made it into the operating room at Children’s Hospital? I would not feel comfortable having any member of my family in an operating room with the possibility that an instrument like that gets used.”
Broman also praised Speaker Cotter and House Republicans for promising to continue monitoring the situation “I am extremely pleased that Speaker Cotter and House Republicans are taking the lead to protect Detroiters, especially children, from mediocre medical care. Detroit Caucus chair Rep. Brian Banks has remained silent, and clearly demonstrates his inability to work for District 1 in Lansing.”
Broman praised the DMC for acknowledging the importance of having a sustainable solution to the problems and hopes that the solutions are crafted swiftly.
Broman also criticized Banks’ silence in a blog published on September 12, 2016.
