Massachusetts General Hospital passes surprise inspection with high marks
Boston Globe, October 19, 2009
Inspectors gave Massachusetts General Hospital high marks during a surprise inspection earlier this year, a difference from a review three years ago that turned up numerous problems at the facility. The Joint Commission re-accredited MGH following the inspection. The hospital received two "direct impact" recommendations for improvement, MGH President Peter Slavin, MD, said, which involve "areas of sufficient concern that the commission believes noncompliance could pose an immediate risk to patient safety or quality of care."
