Dental care center in Maui, Hawaii closed due to ‘unintended consequences’
Posted October 28, 2018 08:03:08A Maui-based dental care facility in Hawaii has closed its doors due to “unintendful consequences” after a patient died while in a care center for dental issues.
The Mauna Kea Center closed its office Tuesday night due to an “unintentional complication of a medical emergency” that “caused significant health risks for patients and staff,” the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported.
The hospital said the incident was “isolated and isolated” and the facility is continuing to provide care.
The closure of the Mauna Maunakea dental facility comes just a few months after the Maitakei Health Department said it had been unable to find the proper funding to reopen the facility.
Maitakeia is located on Maui’s northernmost island, where a string of volcanic eruptions have erupted in recent years, causing landslides and mudslides that have killed hundreds of people and left thousands homeless.
Maui County Executive Mike Mihalasa said in a statement the Maimakei Department of Health is working with Maui County to find a replacement facility for the facility, but that no final decision has been made.
The Maimamei Health Board said it will continue to monitor the situation.
