The latest Indiana medical error report shows bed sores were the most reported problem…as the number of incidents grew by half. The State Department of Health says Hoosier hospitals and clinics reported 45 stage three or four pressure ulcers, or bed sores, acquired after admission, up from 30 in 2012. In fact, that's been the most reported incident seven of the eight years the report has been compiled. The report also lists more than two dozen incidents of foreign objects left in patients after surgery, 18 surgeries performed on the wrong body part and 12 falls resulting in death or serious disability.
