A psychiatric and substance abuse hospital in the east may have their medicaid and medicare funding shut off if federal officials don't accept their correction plan.

The Wilson Times reports that Coastal Plains Hospital in Rocky Mount is waiting to hear back from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid in Atlanta.

The 50 bed in-patient facility came under fire last month after a patient had been dead for six hours and no one noticed.

The paper reports the workers involved in the incident have been fired.

Hospital officials expect to have another review sometime before the end of the month.
