Feds reduce penalty against Atlanta Health Careers

ATLANTA (AP) - Federal officials have reduced the penalty against a Georgia company that trains medical workers.

Atlanta Health Careers Institute LLC agreed in September to pay $32,000 for failing to make sure two medical instructors received required safety training before teaching students. The company was also cited for failing to keep paperwork on hand showing that instructors had the required vaccinations.

The payment was less than the original penalty assessed at $60,000.

The managing director, Sylvia Lawson, says her instructors were scheduled to complete the training session shortly after classes started. Both instructors had received the right vaccinations, but Lawson said she did not retrain the right records.

Lawson says those problems have been fixed.
