Minnesota

The Adverse Health Events Reporting Law, passed during the 2003 legislative session and modified in 2004, provides health care consumers with information on how well hospitals and outpatient surgical centers are doing at preventing adverse events. The law requires that hospitals disclose when any of 28 “never events” occur and requires the Minnesota Department of Health to publish annual reports of the events by facility, along with an analysis of the events, the corrections implemented by facilities, and any recommendations for improvement in Minnesota.
