2012 report on patient harm — and protection


 Hospitals in southeastern Minnesota reported six instances of serious patient harm in the state's 2012 Adverse Health Events assessment. Seven were reported the previous year by Mayo Clinic's Saint Marys and Rochester Methodist hospitals alone… Mayo Clinic results mirror statewide ones in that "overall level of harm seems to have decreased, and the number of pressure ulcers has kind of remained elevated or even climbed somewhat," said the clinic's patient safety officer, Dr. Tim Morgenthaler.
