Mistaken mastectomy probe

Pathologist suspended while tests reviewed

I wonder if the speed at which recommended safety procedures are being implemented are a good indication of the value that the medical profession's colleges et all places on their patients' well being?

How long have the recommendations for Surgical Checklists been ignored or ridiculed?

Province probes mistaken surgeries
The Ontario government has launched an external review into a number of botched medical procedures

This should give us as much comfort as
"Bill 31, Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004".

We need patient protection.

Fears grip Windsor
in wake of medical mistakes

Is the current system, in practical terms,
self regulating or self serving?

If there is any reason for doubt,
is that the reason we now have fear?
