Patient Harm Community Facebook page now online, from ProPublica

ProPublica, the nonprofit investigative reporting newsroom, has established a Facebook page for people affected by errors, injuries or infection while undergoing medical treatment. The page is moderated by ProPublica reporters Marshall Allen, who has covered the topic since 2006 and won a Goldsmith Award at the Las Vegas Sun for his series "Do No Harm: Hospital Care in Las Vegas," and Olga Pierce, who covers health policy, insurance issues and data journalism. ProPublica's plans for the online community include Q&A's with experts and links to the latest reports, research and policy proposals.
