  • Wrong-Site Surgery Quarterly Update: The Authority continues to see encouraging signs that wrong-site surgery is decreasing in Pennsylvania. The 2009 third quarter total was the second lowest quarterly total ever. The third quarter of the year is usually the quarter when the resident training cycle traditionally begins and thus more errors are likely to occur. The trend toward fewer reports of wrong-site surgery reinforces the Authority's belief that the advice developed from its Preventing Wrong-Site Surgery Project is useful.
