The Detroit Medical Center’s Harper University Hospital passed an important inspection this month.

Harper Hospital could’ve lost Medicare payments after a Dec. 13, 2018 inspection listed several violations, including failure to accurately record time of death for three patients, "resulting in the potential for the inability to recover tissue and/or organs for use in transplant."

Federal officials confirm a Detroit hospital could lose millions of dollars if it fails to fix problems by April 15.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services could cut off money for the Detroit Medical Center’s Harper University Hospital.

Officials say the hospital has problems with patient safety compliance.

Documents from a Dec. 13, 2018 inspection list several violations, including failure to accurately record time of death for three patients, "resulting in the potential for the inability to recover tissue and/or organs for use in transplant."
