Surviving Healthcare Today: We Are a Patient Safety Team

Guest: Joni Aldrich, cancer, caregiving and patient safety advocate in honor of her husband, Gordon, who died in 2006 from multiple myeloma. Through the steep cancer learning curve, many things went wrong in Gordon's care--including a misdiagnosis of the aggressiveness of his cancer. Consequently, after 5 months of treatment, his cancer was 3X worse than when he was diagnosed, emphasizing the need for patients and caregivers to be engaged in finding the right cancer care facility.
