Hospitals Fined More than $1M For Failure to Report Adverse Events



One-fourth of California's 450 acute care hospitals have been fined a total of more than $1 million so far for failing to promptly report adverse events. Since the state law requiring such fines took effect July 1, 2007, more than 100 acute care hospitals have been assessed at the rate of $100 for every day after five days that the adverse event went unreported and within 24 hours if the situation represents an emergent threat to the safety of a patient, visitor or personnel.
