Summary

In a series of true stories from across Canada, this collection seeks to point out the considerable human toll that medical errors cause. Victims of medical errors and their families who speak out often do so at considerable emotional, psychological, and financial expense. But their willingness to share their harrowing stories has helped to lay the foundation for numerous patient safety programs and continues to identify problems, provide solutions, and raise awareness. These emotional and moving stories underline serious issues with medical errors while empowering patients.
