State report: Medical errors continue, but numbers are down

Posted on January 15th, 2010 by Kelley Luckstein

The number of medical mistakes in Minnesota and in Rochester hospitals fell slightly last year and were generally less severe than in previous years, but a new report from the Minnesota Health Department shows preventable errors still are happening…

 

Mayo Clinic's two hospitals in Rochester, Methodist and Saint Marys, reported 38 events causing one death and three serious disabilities. The death was a suicide at Saint Marys.
