An independent audit ┬áhas found more than two dozen problems in Kaiser Permanente’s home-care programs in Oregon, including issues tracking patient medication, reports The (Portland) Oregonian.

The paper reported that “The programs serve 750 patients who need hospice or other care at home. Three-quarters of them are on Medicare, a program that Kaiser touts as the best in the Northwest.

{T}he Joint Commission, which did the audit and which is the main healthcare accrediting organization, told Kaiser to follow up with an intensive series of additional audits. “The commission will watch providers care for patients again this month or next.”
