....the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has released an exhaustive list of medical errors occurring at the nation's 4,700 hospitals.
CMS used Medicare fee-for-service claims from October 2008 through June 2010, based on the rates of eight different "never events," or medical errors, of which each is compared with the national rate for the event in question.
The American Hospital Ass'n is aghast. Maybe they'll recover from their dead faint.
Easier to recover from dead-faint than from simply "dead."
By the way, the database is VERY interesting, especially for the UW Hospital....
