Thanks for coming to this blog. It will be a place where I will let you know what is happening with the proposed legislation that my family has written for the 2013 Kansas legislative session, and a place where I will share my thoughts about disclosure of medical errors. I also hope that it is a place where we can have thoughtful discussions about medical errors, their disclosure, and how our healthcare system can improve so that fewer patients experience errors.
The story of what happened to my father is explained on the bottom of the About page. But this site is not about my father. It is about what my family has gone through since my fathers death. In the coming months I will be sharing with you thoughts about medical error disclosure, as well as highlighting some work by researchers and healthcare institutions on the topic of medical errors.
