The Quality Improvement Coordinator has enlisted your help in maintaining a dataset of hospitals and the amount of different outpatient procedures performed during the past year. This dataset willbe useful for benchmarking purposes so it is important to you and the quality improvement coordinator that the data set is error free. During your review of the 40-row dataset (shown in the table spanning the next 2 pages), you notice multiple anomalies that would need to be corrected before the data set is used.
In the textbox below, indicate the table cells with the anomalies. Identify the cells using column letter/row number format (e.g., A1, C40, H2).
