OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas officials say the conditions at Osawatomie State Hospital have improved since it lost its Medicare certification last year and that the psychiatric facility is ready for a federal inspection. The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2bpAxdj ) reports that the facility in Osawatomie lost certification in December after federal inspectors expressed safety concerns at the hospital after a patient was charged in the rape of a staff member in October and other safety issues. Inspectors had said the hospital had out-of-date facilities and was understaffed, which put staff and patients at risk. The facility has had several renovations, including the installation of new ceilings, which is meant to prevent suicide attempts. The facility says it now ensures patients receive 24-hour nursing care. The state has applied for recertification. The hospital is set to be ready for a review by inspectors on August 30.
