Consumers Support Mandatory Reporting of Medical Errors

While the healthcare industry is uncertain about how it should handle medication errors, the public is clear on what it favors - mandatory reporting with limited or no immunity
for those committing the errors, according to a survey by TNS Intersearch, an international survey firm in New York. This issue took center stage earlier this year when the
Institute of Medicine published a report that found that up to 100,000 deaths per year are due to medication errors.
