App Store Description

Hospitals are dangerous places. Preventable medical errors in hospitals are the 3rd leading cause of death. They happen in all hospitals every day, even the highest-rated.

Most errors are never reported. Every hospital patient is at risk. It is a silent epidemic.

This app and any and all associated information is not offered as, nor intended to be, a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of a licensed healthcare practitioner for any health-related matter. If you think you have a medical emergency take immediate measures to seek medical help, including calling 911 if necessary.

This app was developed in co-operation with leading medical professionals and contains much life-saving information that hospitals will not provide to patients. It can help hospital patients, their families, and advocates understand, avoid, and deal with preventable errors.

The app includes:
1) what is a medical error
2) how and why errors happen
3) what steps can be taken to avoid an error
4) how to know if an error was made
5) what to do if an error happens
6) what to do if the patient has been harmed by an error
and much more.

The app also includes links to valuable online resources that are available for free to registered users, including medical forms for patients and a toolkit to help patients get high medical bills reduced.
