Website showcases hospital inspection reports

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KTTC) -- Information on the quality and safety of the nation's hospitals is now available online. 

The Association of Health Care Journalists has launched a website with reports of hospital violations since January 2011.

The site comes after years of work by the association urging the government to release the information.

Previously, federal inspection reports were only available through a Freedom of Information Act request.
