Remaking American Medicine
Silent KillersStreaming Video - 2009
Setting the stage for a thorough discussion of patient safety, this program highlights the efforts of Sorrel King, whose 18-month-old daughter died at one of the most respected and well-equipped hospitals in the world. King has gone from grieving victim to engaged activist, partnering with the renowned facility to make safety a top priority-and joining forces with concerned physicians to save an estimated 100,000 lives in American hospitals. This is nearly equivalent to the number of people who die each year from medical errors, according to the Institute of Medicine.
