In the last couple of days, I've read two selections

from the same book. I must say, I think it would be good to read it, not just you or I, but the people who make policy, run hospitals, and generally have a business with health care.

The book is by Dr Marty Makary, is called Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won't Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care, and it was published this month.

Here is one excerpt:

How to Stop Hospitals From Killing Us: Medical errors kill enough people to fill four jumbo jets a week. A surgeon with five simple ways to make health care safer.

and here's the other:

Are Hospitals Less Safe Than We Think?
