In the Hospital/Emergency Department

"If there is one place that you do not want to be when you are sick, it is the hospital." 

– Heather Boerner, Physician Leadership Journal    March/April 2016

Our North Carolina hospital systems are extremely complex, with millions of moving parts, and while many of our health systems continue to be actively engaged in efforts to improve patient safety, we still have a long way to go. A highly regarded 2013 research study published in the Journal of Patient Safety indicated that over 400,000 patient deaths occur each year nationwide as a result of preventable adverse medical events, which include hospital-acquired infections, medication errors, and communication errors, just to name a few.
