Governor Rendell Offers Coverage to 29,000 on AdultBasic Waiting List; Unveils New Policy to Improve Quality of Care for the Low-Income and Pennsylvanians With Disabilities
Date:1/22/2008

e serious adverse events can be identified as; surgical events, such as surgery performed on the wrong body part or patient; patient protection events, such as an infant discharged to the wrong family; environmental events, such as a patient death associated with a fall while being cared for in a healthcare facility; and care management events, such as a patient death or serious disability associated with a medication error.

In making payments to acute care general hospitals, the department will consider whether the event was preventable, within control of the hospital, occurred during an inpatient admission and/or resulted in significant harm.
