Summary
Each year, one out of every four hospital patients in the United States will be harmed by the care they receive. Over 400,000 will die as a result. Watson delivers a patient-centered blueprint on how to transform the patient-safety movement, and provides key safety habits that people must learn to recognize so they can be sure hospital personnel use them during every patient encounter
