Hi Bob,

I could not get the details of what happened in the first link and with the second I needed another Adobe version downloaded.

Is there a summary of the facts anywhere?

A sad, sad happening. 

Thoughts would be that 32 weeks is early and apart from a major error (which happened here) the US has overall pretty poor obstetrical care compared to the rest of the world. http://www.midwife.org/acnm/files/ccLibraryFiles/Filename/000000003784/MACPACAttachmentFinal1-6-14.pdf <http://www.midwife.org/acnm/files/ccLibraryFiles/Filename/000000003784/MACPACAttachmentFinal1-6-14.pdf>

The figures are pretty horrendous. Is that what DT is referring to when he says we need to make America Great Again? 

However, white upper class parents should be able to get some of the best care in the world. Most of the poor obstetrical care in the US is due to poor pre-natal care and access.

This is why we need a new approach that focusses on good healthcare for ALL, accelerating research and change, and dealing with the main problems first.

Enjoy tomorrow.

Rob

Listen how the family notices the smallest nuances about how the hospital staff treated them during and after this incident.  See how impactful those observations were to these young parents.

I still remember listening to Sorrel King's first presentation with Peter Pronovost after her daughter Josie died from medical error at Hopkins (http://josieking.org/home/ <http://josieking.org/home/>) .  That story, and this one, will live with me forever.
