HHS Report Finds Most Hospital Errors Unreported By Hospital Employees

In continuing coverage, ABC News reports on its website, “A new report released Friday by the inspector general of the US Department of Health and Human Services found that more than 80 percent of hospital errors go unreported by hospital employees.” The new “report, which looked at data from hospitalized Medicare patients, also found that most hospitals where errors were reported rarely changed their policies and practices to prevent repeat errors, saying the event did not reveal any ‘systemic quality problems.’”

The National Journal reported, “In correspondence published alongside the report, former Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services head Dr. Donald Berwick said Medicare officials plan to develop a list of reportable events to help make it clear what hospital employees need to look out for.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
