New Documentary “Never Events” Puts Patient Safety into Spotlight
I am very pleased to say that my friend, Angela Rei Asatrian, has formally released her very important documentary called “Never Events.” Right after my daughter Emily’s tragic death, from a medication error in 2006, I really thought what had happened to her, had to have been a remote possibility, or a freak accident. Many people today, have the same kind of sentiments I did initially, that these types of medical errors are a very rare occurrence, and are completely unaware that preventable medical error has now been identified as the third leading cause of death in the United States. This makes it an issue that affects each and every one of us, as well as, our loved ones, simply due to the fact that we ALL receive healthcare during the course of our lifetime.
This documentary really goes in depth, in terms of highlighting stories, like my daughter Emily’s, and the clinician/caregivers that have been involved in preventable medical harm. In addition, you will hear about the valuable “lessons learned,” and the thoughts and opinions related to these stories, from some of the leading experts in healthcare and patient safety.
If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend watching it this weekend!
