Correction: Falls Rates Improved in Southeastern Pennsylvania: The Impact of a Regional Initiative to Standardize Falls Reporting

Arnold TV, Barger DM. Falls rates improved in southeastern Pennsylvania: the impact of a regional initiative to standardize falls reporting. Pa Patient Saf Advis [online] 2012 Jun [cited 2012 Jul 3].

The article contained statements in error. The data analysis should have indicated that during the initiative, two hospitals within the same health system jointly reported falls events. The two hospitals were represented as one for the duration of the initiative, and as a result, the falls rates were revised to reflect patient-days from both facilities. The correction has been made to the online article. The editor regrets the error.
