Discovery Channel has just aired a great Patient Safety documentary. You can catch the documentary online:
The documentary is narrated by Dennis Quaid and it features many of the big names in Patient Safety, including Lucian Leape, David Bates, and Peter Pronovost. The documentary also highlights a few tragic stories of patients harmed by a medical error. It provides a good overview of what has been learned and where healthcare needs to go to achieve "zero" errors. It's worth the 45 minutes to watch and remember that patient's lives are on line.
