Touchstones for Patient Safety and Family Well-Being

Eliminate Taxpayer Subsidy of Doctor’s Insurance

Protecting doctors by having the public pay part of their insurance premiums harms true accountability to patients and families.

Make Apology Normal

Apology after harm should be the rule, not the exception.

Install “Black Box” Technology in Operating Rooms

Black boxes would make surgery more transparent and perhaps safer as a result.

Require Full Transparency and Disclosure of Hospital Harm and Medical Errors

Make public reporting of medical errors and harmful incidents mandatory.

Eliminate Hospital Parking Fees

Reducing parking costs can assist with patient care and recovery.
