Ethics Rounds: Ethics Rounds Who Should Apologize for Medical Mistakes?
Medical error is a frequent consequence of relying on human beings to take care of patients. Medical error also can be devastating for patients, families, clinicians and health care institutions. Professional associations, patients, safety experts, hospital accreditation standards and many U.S. states now endorse or require disclosure of medical errors. However, there remains significant debate regarding how medical errors should be disclosed. Please join us to discuss a critical part of this debate: who should disclose and apologize for medical errors?
