Summary

This book explores the issues surrounding medical errors and examines the science behind possible solutions. It creates a more efficient dialogue that will produce a more systemic targeting of the causes of medical errors and HAIs. The author elucidates the problems, including the complex issues of money and ethics. He uses statistical data to build the case for systemic change and re-confirms that millions of procedures done without error is as an important measuring figure as are the numbers of mistakes.
