Who We Are
We are a group of hospital safety advocates that includes nurses, physicians, healthcare experts, attorneys & regular folks. Some of us have experienced first-hand a preventable medical error or errors that led to an extremely serious or tragic outcome.
Preventable medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., after heart disease and cancer. We are a voice for medically harmed patients and their families who seek to improve hospital safety and secure justice for the harm they suffered.
Provide incident reports about cases where patients were harmed by preventable medical errors.
Provide the patient perspective on how to prevent such errors.
Provide oversight resources for families to aid in the correction of hospital deficiencies.
Provide a resource of attorneys for harmed families to help achieve justice in the courts.
Sources for our stories include investigatory reports from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, court documents, public records, direct testimony from witnesses, and interviews with medical experts.
