Waiting for Rabbit Redux

Good stories are sometimes told across time, and so may be the case in telling the story of how healthcare gets healed.

I found this interesting interview, Medical Errors, 10 Years Post-Op, with two of the authors of the original IOM report. It's nicely bundled with a short history of the "hospitalist" specialty. (Don't miss the history of events that have informed the evolution of patient safety at the bottom of the piece.)

While we're waiting for Rabbit, here's a link to another snapshot of patient safety-sensitive performance measures: a 2009 report, commissioned by the American College of Healthcare Executives entitled, "Bad Blood: Doctor-Nurse Behavior Problems Impact Patient Care."

Maybe get a chair.
