WHAT WE LEARNED FROM THE PROPUBLICA PATIENT HARM QUESTIONNAIRE
Patient safety is one of the most talked about topics in medicine today, but it’s rare to hear from patients who have been injured. Now, ProPublica has gathered more than 1,000 stories of patient harm, from all 50 states, as reported by patients or their loved ones. Their experiences – summarized here – add an important dimension to the patient safety debate, particularly when it comes to the neglect and abandonment many feel from a system that is supposed to be caring.

Most of all, they assert that no one is being held accountable for the harm.
