Treatment SOS: Preventable Medical Errors--The True Loss of Life

September 23, 201650 min
Guest: Dr. John James, Patient Safety America, author A Sea of Broken Hearts: Patient Rights in a Dangerous, Profit-Driven Health Care System. Using data from the Office of the Inspector General of the Dept. of Health and Human Services and in peer-reviewed medical journals, John published an estimate that medical preventable adverse events contribute to the deaths of 440,000 Americans each year (published in the Journal of Patient Safety in 2013). His advocacy is in honor of his 19-year-old son, who died as a result of uninformed and unethical care by cardiologists in 2002. Host: Joni Aldrich, www.jonialdrich.com
