After an investigation and inspection of Capital Care Network of Cuyahoga Falls, the Ohio Department of Health announced its intent to shut down the abortion provider due to multiple health and safety violations.
Through an investigation of public records, Ohio Right to Life identified numerous legal and regulatory violations. The abortion provider chose to be unresponsive to state regulator’s requests for comment.
During Capital Care’s annual inspection, investigators cited multiple violations under 10 various inspection categories ranging from cleanliness, surgical procedures and staff requirements. Among many violations, Capital Care failed to perform TB testing, used unqualified and untrained staff, failed to meet sanitary standards and failed to properly keep patient documentation and made dozens of other operational and medical failures.
“We commend all who participated in this investigation, as well as the pro-life witnesses who have worked and prayed for this day,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Cincinnati Right to Life. “Every victory to protect women and their children from the deadly abortion industry is a milestone towards truth and justice.”
