This is a you-can’t-believe-this-is-happening-every-day documentary produced by Dennis Quaid in the wake of the near death of his children in the hospital.
There are stories of medical record access denied and unnecessary patient and family tragedy, great health care professional talent wasted by poor systems.
When I interact with/meet people like Sue Sheridan and @ReginaHolliday and then hear about their stories, I can’t believe how professional, poised, and ready to teach they are in these discussions. As my colleague @Lygeia and I were talking yesterday about these exceptional people, we realized, sadly, that the next Sue or Regina is being created, right now, in our health care system. We just haven’t met them yet.
Watch, see what you think.
P.S. After watching this, this paid-media seems even more of a head scratcher.
