HHS: Hospitals ignoring requirements to report errors, USA Today, - #nurseup, #nursefriendly, #mederrors, #malpractice, #healthcare

HHS: Hospitals ignoring requirements to report errors, USA Today:"Hospitals are ignoring state regulations that require them to report cases in which medical care harmed a patient, making it almost impossible for health care providers to identify and fix preventable problems, a report to be released today by the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general shows. Hospitals may avoid blame for errors when they don't report preventable problems, but they lose the chance to track issues, such as new infections making their way through hospitals. Forty-four percent of the cases tracked by inspectors involved preventable health care problems, the report said."
