The government says hospitals are becoming safer for patients, due to a quality improvement partnership between industry and federal agencies. A report out Wednesday from Health and Human Services finds that adverse events such as medication mistakes, falls and infections went down by 9 percent from 2010 to 2012--the latest year that such statistics were available. Separately, a key quality indicator for Medicare patients also showed continued improvement: Readmission rates declined in 2013, for the second year in a row. Under President Barack Obama's health care law, hospitals can face financial penalties if too many Medicare beneficiaries are readmitted within 30 days of an initial hospitalization.
