New York State Hospital Report Card: 20 Hospitals on 'Watch List' With Below-Average Safety Performance

The Niagara Health Quality Coalition has published the 2011 edition of its New York State Hospital Report Card along with a safety analysis, and 20 hospitals in the state have been named to the "Watch List" of hospitals with troubled safety records, according to a Times Union report.


Twenty-four hospitals were named the "Safest Hospitals" in the state. These were hospitals with the fewest preventable complications, medical errors and infections, while those on the "Watch List" had a higher number of problems in those safety areas.
