(NEWSER)– When TV personality and comedian Joan Rivers went to an outpatient clinic on Manhattan's Upper East Side in late August, she was supposed to be in and out for a throat procedure.

Instead she went into cardiac arrest and died a week later, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is now citing Yorkville Endoscopy for multiple failings throughout her stay, reports Reuters. Those include not being weighed to determine dosage before administering the sedative propofol, not getting consent for all procedures performed, and failing to detect vital signs during the procedures.
