    Hopefully the problems are not beyond repair, but perhaps a little self-analysis is necessary to ensure that the problems are recognized. Using only the article as a basis, it appears that the organization may be in a state of denial about the extent of the problems. I hope that’s not the case, for the sake of the patients ans the community.
