Surgical errors are more widespread than many realize

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has released a Patient Safety Primer about the issue of "wrong-site, wrong-procedure, wrong-patient errors" (so-called "WSPEs") to raise awareness for providers and patients alike. A previous study published in the Archives of Surgery that analyzed both voluntary and mandatory healthcare facility reporting data shows that as many as 2700 WSPEs happen each year in a variety of surgical settings (including inpatient, outpatient, ambulatory care and interventional radiology).
