Dear Carol,

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.
