Sparrow Carson Hospital in Carson City Mich., could lose Medicare patients after an investigation found the hospital is not compliant with infection control standards, according to an article on the Lansing State Journal website.

A Feb. 6 letter from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the deficiencies at Sparrow Carson Hospital "are significant and limit your hospital's capacity to render adequate care and ensure the health and safety of your patients."
