A PATIENT SAFETY DOCUMENTARY
THE #3 LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH
IN THE UNITED STATES
IS ITS OWN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
Filmmaker and comedian Steve Burrows shares his investigation into the state of American health care after his mother's routine surgery left her in a coma with permanent brain damage. The cascading of errors that damaged his mother and lack of accountability mirror what so many experience of medical harm.
“We have not even begun to recognize the country’s third leading cause of death: Medical care gone wrong.”
— DR. MARTY MAKARY
