Federal government stops reporting of hospital errors

UNDATED (WTVB) - Life-threatening mistakes at hospitals are no longer publicly reported.  The federal government stopped reporting the errors this month.  It means most people are out of luck if they want to find out which hospitals repeatedly commit serious errors like leaving foreign objects in patients' bodies. 

Public safety advocates argue that transparency is still needed and consumers have a right to such information.
