By SEO Admin on December 09, 2010

New York Times (November 25, A1 Grady) In this study the New York Times reported that efforts "to make hospitals safer for patients are falling short, researchers report in the first large study in a decade to analyze harm for medical care and to track it over time." The study, "conducted from 2002 to 2007 in ten North Carolina hospitals found that harm to patients was common and that the number of incidents did not decrease over time. The most common problems were complications from procedures or drugs in a hospital acquired infections." Apparently this study is "one of the most rigorous efforts to collect data about patients safety since a landmark report in 1999 found that medical mistakes caused as many as 98,000 deaths and more than one million injuries a year in the United States."
