Correction: Quarterly Update on Preventing Wrong-Site Surgery

Clarke JR. Quarterly update on preventing wrong-site surgery. Pa Patient Saf Advis [online] 2012 Jun [cited 2012 Jul 3].;9(2)/Pages/69.aspx.

The article contained inaccurate information. The Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority received corrected information from the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council about the number of procedures done in Pennsylvania hospitals and ambulatory surgical facilities from July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2011. As a result of this new information, the rates for wrong-site surgery were updated. The correction has been made to the online article. The editor regrets the error.
