Proposed bill would make medical mishaps by CT hospitals public

Hartford Courant, February 16, 2010

All medical mishaps reported by Connecticut hospitals would again be made public under legislation to be considered this session by the public health committee. The proposed bill, drafted by the attorney general's office, would eliminate a confidentiality provision added in 2004 to the state's "adverse event" law; a revision that now keeps most reports secret. The draft also calls on the state Department of Public Health to conduct random audits of hospitals to determine compliance with the reporting law, with each violation bringing a fine as high as $10,000, the Hartford Courant reports.
