The chief legislative advocate for the New Jersey office of the AARP wrote a guest commentary this week in the Bergen Record urging state lawmakers to pass legislation to give patients the information they need to choose the right facility for their healthcare needs. Marilyn Askin says in the commentary that hospital-specific medical error information is still hidden from the New Jersey public, which has the right to know which medical facilities have the highest and lowest major medical error rates.
