Thanks David, Very interesting.

The US is unusual in so many ways. 

Is this where the focus should be to improve things? 

Is the desire of many for feedom from rules/guidelines/laws incompatible with our desire to make significant progress in reducing errors in medicine?

I remember some years back many physicians strongly objecting to what was called cook book medicine. Suspect that that sentiment still lingers.

The Wikipedia article below has 12 other organizations that accredit hospitals and facilities. I am presuming that there is not standardization across these organizations, but perhaps I am wrong?
