Saskatchewan Health annual report says 195 critical incidents a record high

REGINA - Saskatchewan Health's annual report says 195 critical incidents were reported over the past fiscal year.

Those incidents include mistakes in surgery, to contaminated medication or patient safety.

Two patients had the wrong surgery performed on them, three patients had a foreign object left inside them and 20 patients were killed after a fall.

NDP health critic Danielle Chartier says the problem is with the $40 million dollar Lean program, which looks for ways to reduce spending and streamline health care.

She says those millions the government is spending for the program are not being spent on hiring doctors, nurses and other health-care professionals.

The province says the reason for the increase is that it has focused more attention on reporting accurate numbers.
