The airlines interview the passengers. Hospitals have been known to close the doors when patients have questions after a bad outcome. The pilot dies if there is a crash, doctors don’t.
Since 1996, even before I went to my first patient safety conference I have been teaching the public about patient safety. What we, as the patient need to know to participate in our care to stay safe. In the past 15 years much has happened in healthcare and the patient and their families voice is being heard louder and more clearly. We have a unique opportunity to continue growing on the popularity of patient’s voices.
