Central Health initiated a review of its patient files earlier this month after it was found that two radiologists wrote reports based on the results of older medical tests rather than those of the patients’ most recent tests. Radiologists subsequently looked at the wrong diagnostic image in at least six cases in Gander. And now the less-than-two-week-old-review, which thus far has looked into 700 of the almost 2,200 patient files, has revealed further mistakes made by radiologists. These newly discovered errors appear to have resulted from physicians reading the correct image, but documenting the wrong information. What surprises are yet in store when the remainder of the files are reviewed?
