Research shows that most of us assume we have a high-quality health care system. Sad to say, this assumption is not true. The Institute of Medicine published a report in 1999, To Err Is Human, where it showed 98,000 annual preventable deaths in U.S. hospitals. And still today medical errors make up one of the our leading causes of death and injury.
We learn more from these experiences by talking about them. Share your stories here – either from a health care provider perspective or patient perspective. You can keep your story anonymous or you can list information about yourself if you’d like.
