Incorrect Word.  —In the Medical News & Perspectives article entitled "New Program Targets Death Investigator Training," published in the March 20, 1996, issue of THE JOURNAL (1996;275:826), an incorrect word appeared in the text. On page 826, in the second full paragraph of the third column, the first sentence should read: "In a review of hospital charts of 258 gunshot wounds treated from 1984 to 1994, Martin L. Fackler, MD, a Hawthorne, Fla, wound ballistics consultant, reported that clinicians adequately [not inadequately] documented the location in 38% of the wounds, size in 4%, and shape in 3%."
