What a new doc learned about medical mistakes from her mom's death

ProPublica, January 10, 2013

For Dr. Elaine Goodman, the strongest lessons in patient safety didn't come from her training. They came from her mother's death. Goodman had just finished her first year of medical school when she found herself spending months at the bedside of her 63-year-old mom, who was battling breast cancer in the hospital. Goodman shared her story after completing ProPublica's Provider Questionnaire, part of their ongoing reporting on patient safety.
