It’s only been a few short months since a major Rhode Island Hospital was in the news because of wrong-site procedures, but today the Providence Journal is reporting that the interventional radiology department at Kent Hospital has been placed on 6 months probation by the Rhode Island Department of Health. 

Kent County reported to the Dept. of Health that a patient had a long term IV catheter inserted into the wrong arm and reported a second incident while the first was still being investigated!   The second incident concerned a patient who had X-ray dye injected into the wrong hip.
