QUALITY: Holding the line on 5 year anniversaries!

Like a bunch of kids sneaking downstairs to open their Christmas presents before the day comes, journalists and pundits across health care are "celebrating" the 5 year anniversary of To Err is Human, weeks before the actual day.

Don’t worry. As a bastion of blogging integrity, you can make a fair bet that THCB will lead with the story, on the actual day…

But for those of you who can’t wait there’s an article in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette here, and a survey from KFF, AHQR, and Harvard (same team as the recent NEJM article).

The conclusion is the same: we haven’t seen a whole lot of progress as yet on medical error reduction.
