Report shows more errors at Indiana’s hospitals
Medical mistakes at Indiana hospitals rose 24% percent last year, according to Indiana's second annual medical errors report. The State Department of Health said one reason for the surge was increased awareness among Indiana's hospitals and surgery centers to track and report their mistakes. The most common mistakes were cases where patients developed advanced bed sores from improper supervision or care during hospitalization, according to the report.
