NJ reports increase in hospital errors
The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services has found in its third annual Patient Safety Act report that 72 people died in the state's hospitals last year as a result of preventable errors—30 more than in 2006. Health officials and patient advocates say, however, that the increase appears to be the result of better reporting of these types of incidents, rather than poor care.
