PA patient organization to work more closely with hospitals

The Patriot-News, September 4, 2008

The Pennsylvania Patient Authority has enlisted a liaison to help improve patient safety at hospitals throughout the state, beginning in the northeast region and expanding statewide next year. The agency, established in 2002, works to reduce medical errors at hospitals and outpatient centers, requiring that all errors be reported. Since its inception, the agency has received nearly one million such reports.
