About this movie

The #3 leading cause of death in the United States is its own healthcare system. Medical mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year and harm millions more. Directed by the son of late patient safety pioneer, Dr. John M. Eisenberg, To Err Is Humanis an in-depth documentary about this silent epidemic and those working behind the scenes to create a new age of patient safety. Through interviews with leaders in health care, footage of real-world efforts leading to safer care, and one family's compelling journey from tragedy to empowerment, the film provides a unique and hopeful look at our health care system's ongoing fight against preventable harm.

Vital, important and urgent documentary about the human and other costs of system, human and healthcare culture flaws that produce harm to patients and families in staggering numbers (220,000 - 400,000 annually in the U.S.). I urge one and all to view. Ted Fox, Retired Healthcare CEO, Co-founder of the Texas Patient Safety Initiative
