New law sheds light on practices of health care providers

"As many as 23,750 people die each year from in-hospital medical errors – also known as adverse events – according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information."

New law will make health care safer!?

I wonder why I don't feel any safer.
Is there a similarity between English common law
and Ontario/Canadian common law
relating to truthfulness?

I'm not even aware of any serious attempt
to lower the needless death rate from
in-hospital medical errors
to 2 deaths per hour.

At one time surgery staff washed up after
all the surgeries were completed.
Why wash up before? Surgery is a messy, dirty business!

Is this the current rationale for hand washing?

Does self-regulation work for the medical profession?
