The Associated Press article Georgia Medical Center in Atlanta was caught in a national spotlight last week when doctors were arrested and charged with criminal trespassing for not being on duty.

The incident sparked outrage from the medical community and drew criticism from local officials who said the doctors were breaking the law.

The Georgia Department of Public Safety says it found doctors not in compliance with state health laws and that they were not properly trained to care for people with mental health conditions.

They were not able to provide proper care to people who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or depression.

The Department of Health and Human Services says it is working with Georgia Medical to investigate and fines those who violate state and federal law.

Medical staff at the Georgia Medical facility were charged with two misdemeanors, one for failing to comply with the state’s regulations regarding mental health care.

The two doctors were fined $2,000 each.
