Heads up! The University of Chicago completed a survey of over 2500 adults regarding their experiences and perceptions of medical error. Results: 1 in 5 Americans reported a medical error in their own care and one third reported an error involving those for whom they care. The good news: almost half of those who experienced a medical error spoke up about it. IHI is offering a FREE teleconference on Monday, March 12 around the importance of speaking up from the perspective of clinicians, staff, patients and families. Registration required. Let’s work together to make care in America safer!
