MEDICAL LAKE, Wash. - An unsecured karaoke machine caused Eastern State Hospital to lose its accreditation last month.
That's according to a new report released by the Washington Department of Social and Health Services.
The report cites the karaoke machine's unsecured cords, as well as other cords and patients' belts, as hazardous to patient safety because they could be used for strangulation.
DSHS spokesman John Wiley says the potential hazards were addressed within 72 hours of the hospital receiving the report. He says the hospital has appealed the December 21st ruling and expects to be re-accredited.
