Louisiana health department shuts down abortion clinic

From the story:
The State Department of Health and Hospitals has ordered the closure of the Gentilly Medical Clinic for Women for alleged violations of state licensure regulations....

The Gentilly abortion facility is currently appealing a separate license revocation action instituted by the Department in January 2010. That action was based on a determination of the facility's "substantial failure to comply with the minimum standards for licensure of abortion clinics," according to DHH.....

DHH says Wednesday's revocation action was based on a new survey of the facility conducted by DHH Health Standards on May 6, 2011.

State officials say the recent survey "found the clinic to be in violation of standards for abortion clinic licensure...Specifically, the facility failed to provide nursing services to meet the needs of its patients and adequately monitor women in recovery following a procedure."
