Serious Reportable Events Report to be Released Wed.

The Department of Public Health will release the latest public report on Serious Reportable Events (SREs) this Wednesday during the monthly meeting of the Public Health Council. The meeting takes place 9am-12:00 at DPH, 250 Washington Street, Boston, in the Public Health Council meeting room. The meeting agenda is here.

HCFA and the Consumer Health Quality Council advocated for the law requiring public reporting of SREs. SREs are very serious events that happen in hospitals or ambulatory surgery centers that cause serious harm or death. Some examples are wrong-site surgery, wrong-person surgery, serious mediation errors, pressure ulcers, falls, and more. Look for a blog later this week summarizing the latest report.
