Description

"This four-month investigation of medical laboratories in the Washington, D.C. area uncovered deaths, unnecessary surgeries and misdiagnosis of patients, all because of laboratory errors." WRC-TV (Washington) "found some labs caused mistakes by forcing techs to work too fast and found patients who died or had unnecessary hysterectomies because pap smears were read incorrectly."
