New Jersey hospitals may have their errors publicized

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, March 2, 2009
New Jersey hospitals may soon be required to make public more detailed information on medical errors. A state Senate committee will meet to discuss a bill that requires the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services to publish how often certain errors occur at each hospital. Healthcare facilities already report preventable medical mistakes to the state and federal governments, but New Jersey only publishes the number of errors statewide, not the data for individual hospitals, as the bill would require.
