One in Five U.S. Hospitals Fail to Adopt Crucial “Never Events” Policies

In 2007, The Leapfrog Group began asking hospitals about their process for handling Never Events – or incidents such as objects left inside patients after surgery, deaths from medication errors, deaths or serious injuries from falls, and surgeries performed on the wrong parts of patients’ bodies. According to a new report released today by Leapfrog and analyzed by Castlight Health, one in five hospitals still fail to adopt a Never Events policy and otherwise do not meet Leapfrog’s standard for Never Events Management.
