Attorneys say Joan Rivers' daughter is "outraged" by findings that errors were made at a Manhattan clinic where the comedian suffered a fatal complication during a medical procedure.

A statement on behalf of Melissa Rivers says she'll work to ensure the safety of future patients.

The federal Department of Health and Human Services has given Yorkville Endoscopy until Jan. 7 to correct deficiencies to avoid losing Medicare accreditation.

A state report released Monday said the clinic "failed to identify deteriorating vital signs and provide timely intervention."

Rivers, who was 81, died Sept. 4 of brain damage due to lack of oxygen. She'd stopped breathing during an endoscopy days earlier.

The clinic said it has submitted a plan to state and federal accreditation agencies addressing all issues raised. It said the physicians involved no longer provide services there.
