What Hospitals Won’t Tell You with Johns Hopkins Surgeon/Professor Dr. Marty Makary

08/04/14 - Monday’s Topical Currents is a rebroadcast with whistle-blower surgeon and Johns Hopkins Professor Dr. Marty Makary.  He’s an international expert on patient safety, who laments the corporatized hospital culture. Twenty-five percent of all hospital patients are harmed by medical mistakes.  He says these blunders are due to blind focus on the proverbial “bottom line.”  He’s written UNACCOUNTABLE:  What Hospitals Won’t Tell You.  Tune in for Topical Currents . . . Monday at 1pm. on WLRN.
