Sitting just behind heart disease and cancer, medical errors in hospitals were cited as the

ourselves that throughout history, from treating polio to discovering insulin, analytical inquiry has proven itself a crucial
prerequisite to innovation and improvement. Sometimes, regardless of the veracity of such statistics, it takes a wellcirculated
critique to serve as a wake-up call for an industry to thoroughly re-evaluate itself.
