Taking a critical look at the impact of medical and medication errors, this program examines the efforts of physicians who are challenging their colleagues to live up to the oath, "First, do no harm." Viewers follow a Pittsburgh doctor confronting an epidemic of hospital-acquired infections, while, in New Jersey, one hospital is engaged in an effort to completely transform the way the institution delivers care. This initiative to improve information technology comes in response to the needless suffering of 89-year-old Anna Terrano, a victim of a medication error.
