Some people might find this graphic inflammatory, if they are feeling defensive about the state of healthcare and if they feel like they are being blamed personally.
The data in this infographic represents the current state, to the best of the ability of researchers to estimate the impact of poor healthcare quality. To improve, we have to recognize the problem.
The title says, “Why US Hospitals Aren’t Nearly as Safe as You Think” but there’s nothing here pointing the finger of blame at the hardworking, intelligent, caring, well-educated healthcare professions. It’s the processes and systems that are broken, not the people. The people can fix this.
