Hospitals should admit errors20th March 2009
The Patients Association has called for the process by which hospitals report errors to be made compulsory.
At present NHS trusts voluntarily report their errors in patient care to the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA). Michael Summers, of the Patients Association, said: "I think the Stafford report showed that it is time to get tough on this. Hospitals need to be forced to report mistakes if we are going to protect patients."
