I found an interesting article on NYDailyNews.com this week entitled, Hospital records were sometimes falsified to cover up medical mistakes. The article discusses the recent report that doctors, nurses and support staff at New York City-run hospitals have falsified documents in hospital records in order to cover up medical mistakes. The records were either deleted altogether or were doctored in order to omit specific details of certain cases in order to mislead investigators. The state issued 16 citations between 2004 and 2008.
