MA panel recommends reporting of hospital infection

iHealthBeat reports on state-appointed panel in Massachusett's debate on mandate for hospital infection reporting. The panel recommended that Massachusetts hospitals be mandated to report some hospital-acquired infection rates to the public, the state and internally. State Legislature is also working on a plan to mandate infection reporting, although only the Public Health Council has the power to approve such regulations.
