The investigations into abortion practices were launched by Gov. Nikki Haley in response to undercover videos in which Planned Parenthood employees discussed their woes in disposing of fetal remains. An audit of previous state inspection records had revealed lax oversight.
Two of the three clinics subsequently were slapped with fines and had their licenses suspended for other violations. Greenville Women's Clinic reportedly addressed six violations, including failure to accurately list medications available in the emergency kit. Their doctors are Terry Lynn Buffkin and Thomas William Campbell, Jr.
Planned Parenthood South Atlantic in Columbia, SC submitted a plan of correction for 21 violations in order to remain open. The Planned Parenthood violations included failure to verify credentials and background checks on employees, failure to have staff properly trained in CPR, failure to provide proper safety and emergency training to employees, expired medications, and storing sterile and non-sterile equipment together.
