Värmland second worst on Lex Maria

2019-09-16T10:17:20.679Z

Värmland is the county in the country that receives almost the most Lex Maria reports rejected by the Inspection for Health and Care. The reason why they fail is that they are not sufficiently well investigated. - It is, after all, low numbers. Of 255 applications, 18 have been rejected, says Charlotta Nelsson, Head of Operations for the Patient Safety Center in Region Värmland.


Over the past three years, Swedish health care providers have submitted over 230 Lex Maria applications that are so substandard that they cannot be approved. This is even after the care provider has been given the opportunity to complete the investigation. It shows statistics from the Inspection for Health and Care for the years 2016-2018.

- We see that there are many major shortcomings in the investigations, says inspector Kerstin Nilsson to the Siren News Agency who compiled the statistics.

Only Gotland is worse

The largest proportion of unsuccessful applications comes from Gotland, where almost nine percent are rejected. Then comes Värmland, where 6.5 percent is rejected.

- When we look at the figures, we see that we have improved during these three years. Eight were rejected in 2016, six in 2017 and four in 2018. But we are still working to train both new and old managers to continue to improve this, says Charlotta Nelsson.

Jämtland has the lowest proportion of failed investigations, which does not even reach as much as one percent.
