Guam - The Skilled Nursing Unit in Barrigada was the subject of a recent survey by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. Interim hospital administrator Rey Vega confirms a team from CMS was on island last week to inspect the facility. He's still waiting to hear whether the team will make another survey of the Guam Memorial Hospital.
In May of last year, CMS conducted a surprise inspection of GMH and found numerous life safety code violations and threatened to pull the hospital's participation in the Medicare program.
GMH maintains the problems have been rectified.
