The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety wishes you, your family and friends a safe and merry Christmas.
While we don’t want to be alarmist, we hope that you are not admitted to a hospital this holiday season.
The Institute of Medicine in its 1999 report, “To Err Is Human” estimated 98,000 people a year die because of medical errors. Recently, John James, PhD reviewed the literature. Using a weighted average of four studies, he found annually at least 210,000 patient deaths were preventable harms in hospitals.
We invite you to watch our clinical education podcasts to hear the latest practices and recommendations from healthcare experts on how to keep you patients safe.
