The following is a list of hospitals in California that have been cited for deficient practices that resulted in harm, including death. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has posted such information on their website. As a result of this posting, consumers become more aware of the delivery of health care in their hospital.
We caution viewers that because the hospital where you receive care has been cited does not necessarily mean that overall care is poor. We must keep in mind, preventable errors occur in all health care facilities.
However, knowing this information makes you, the consumer, more aware and supports the continuing process of educating yourself in order to be part of the health care team that will provide quality safe care.
