Description

This investigation uncovered a frightening number of medication errors with no nationwide system to protect unsuspecting patients and their families. WJLA-TV discovered a repeated pattern of medical mix-ups around the country, deadly trends that went unnotied. The investigation also documented serious flaws in the government's current practice of relying on hospitals to report medication errors voluntarily. (May 11, 12, Oct. 10 & 11, 1995)
