    Manager: Del. Planned Parenthood Clinic Troubled

    A former manager at Planned Parenthood of Delaware's Wilmington clinic says she saw numerous problems while working there, including poor training and substandard patient care.

    Melody Meanor, who managed the clinic's health center for three months in 2012, spoke at a hearing Tuesday. She says personnel were poorly trained and routinely skipped important elements of patient care. Meanor says she saw no evidence of data collection and the clinic borrowed against grants to cover payroll.

    Planned Parenthood says its high standards weren't met and it hired new staff, retrained staff and instituted new policies.

    Meanor says hundreds of women weren't told that they tested positive for sexually transmitted diseases.  Planned Parenthood says those claims aren't true and state health officials say they have no evidence that results were withheld.
