Subject: Hospitals
Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Date: 1994-06-12



The Cleveland Plain Dealer looks at heart catheterization, an operation that treats blocked arteries. The paper used a computer database to analyze more than 110,000 procedures and found that 323 people died from the procedure. The series also found that catheterization labs have proliferated in Ohio due to a loophole in the law, that there are ill-equipped hospitals doing the procedure and that low-risk hospitals have not been prosecuted for breaking the law by performing heart catheterizations on high-risk patients.
