September 26, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
UCI Medical Center could be in danger of losing its state funding after an inspection found some serious problems at the hospital.According to the L.A. Times, inspectors found that doctors had filled out anesthesiology records and surgery outcomes before the procedures were completed. Inspectors also found substandard equipment checks and inadequate staffing.

It seems though no patients were harmed as a result of the failings.

The facility will remain under state supervision until a second inspection confirms the hospital has fixed the problems.
