Inquirer staff report:

Gov Corzine will sign into law today legislation requiring New Jersey hospitals to make public more detailed information on hospital medical errors.

The legislation also bars hospitals from charging insurers or patients for procedures to correct certain medical mistakes or hospital-acquired conditions.
 
Under the law, the state’s Department of Health and Senior Services Department will publish reports detailing how often certain egregious errors occur at each hospital. The errors include operating on the wrong body part or leaving an instrument inside a patient's body.
