Pennsylvania healthcare facilities reported 11 wrong-site surgeries to the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority during the most recent reporting quarter, which is an increase from the previous quarter, but matches the third lowest quarterly number of event reports. This update includes any belated additions and corrections from previous reporting quarters; specifically, the identification and deletion of a second, duplicate event report of a wrong-site surgery in the first quarter of 2006, resulting in minor adjustments to previous totals for the seven reporting years (June 2004 through September 2011).
