Exactly, and well said.



As long as the heads stay in the sand the status quo will grow worse.

Sir the biggest issue for patients is doctors and/or other HCP's that don't take responsibility for their part in it. If the problem is that doctor missed something, not every one is screaming for blood and multimillion dollar settlements I had an medication issue that they caught in the hospital. I remember it more than 2 years later because I was thankful and it gave me trust to know that they were looking out to fix mistakes. They didn't tell me but when I learned of it, I was thankful they did.



Its when people aren't taking responsibility for their part in it that we worry. That causes patients to lose trust. We've seen enough true stories, such as with medical state boards doing nothing time and again, that without doctors stepping up to say this part was my error, etc. and working to fix it, the trust factor is going to keep doing downhill.



Or facing the issue because the list gets very quiet when confronted with patients putting the truth up. I have no problems doing that. I want that others don't get the problems I did. I'm sure others do also.

As long as the heads stay in the sand the status quo will grow worse.
