Twenty-Five Dead Due to Mistakes in Care for Thrombosis

Since October 2010, at least 25 people died due to mistakes in the care for Thrombosis. These results come from a list established by the Inspectorate for Health Care (IGZ). According to the organization, the number of dead is probably higher because not all incidents were registered. The problems occurred in many places – hospitals, nursing homes, psychiatric institutions and with home patients who are controlled by a Thrombosis service. The Inspectorate wants to approve the medical care for the patients which did not happen last year.
