We don’t get far with guns mainly because of the gun lobby.
Is there a healthcare “lobby,” overt or covert, that resists change as it pertains to patient safety?
I do not know but have wondered why we do not make too much progress in patient safety as a whole (diagnostic and other errors).
Is it just the bottom line lobby?

In this community here - it is a hot topic. Not so much with others, even healthcare providers. I believe that change willoccur faster when the public /media starts pushing for changes.
