Brian Goldman: Doctors make mistakes. Can we talk about that?

How much do medical mistakes cost? 19.5 Billion per year study-puts-cost-of-medical-errors-at-195-billion This linkw will lead you to an interesting article on the costs of medical errors.

How can we fix a problem that is systemic.?

I have worked with many practices that have put no thought into prevention of errors and find that talking to physicians and medical staff about mistakes is like talking about abortion or politics. NO ONE WANTS TALK ABOUT IT! As if somehow the mere mention of errors would somehow make them happen.

I have seen investigations into medical errors and they are not singular in nature meaning that multiple parties are involved in most mistakes and a recurring theme always comes up: Not listening to patients and caregivers.

How can we change the mindset that the patient does not know what they are talking about when it comes to their own health?

How do we heal Healthcare and should we have thought of prevention?
