Keep women safe = enforce health safety standards

The regulations to enforce common-sense safety standards needs to be made permanent.

If you went into a doctor's office, would you want to see blood-spattered examination tables and medical instruments, and other unsterilized equipment, and the doctors/nurses not washing their hands?!?!

Health inspectors documented multiple health and safety violations in the facilities and most of the facilities had to submit plans of correction in order to receive provisional licensure.

Ensure life-saving equipment is on hand, infections are prevented, and clear written policies and building guidelines are in place. This is simple safety!
