Statement verbatim, as issued Tuesday by The Indiana State Department of Health:
The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) has identified a mistake on the Indiana Medical Error Report for 2012. The mistake is found in Appendix C on a report for an ambulatory surgery center. The data page (Appendix page 156) for Parkview Surgery One, Allen County, shows one retention of a foreign object. That is incorrect. There should have been no events reported on that page. The page has been corrected on the Medical Error Report posted on the ISDH website. The mistake was isolated to that page so other pages in the report were correct. The ISDH apologizes for its error.
