When doctors make mistakes
Many people believe that it's bad doctors who damage patients but this is rarely the case. More than anything else, it's the working conditions in hospitals which pose a threat to the life and health of patients. Nevertheless, the subject of patient safety is a taboo. In many cases doctors are still regarded as demi-gods in white, blessed with infallibility. As this film shows, however, the problem could be solved.
