Memphis Screening of To Err is Human: A Patient Safety Documentary

05/25/2018, 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Southern College of Optometry, 1245 Madison Avenue, Memphis, TN 38104 map

Description:

To Err Is Human: A Patient Safety Documentary is an upcoming feature documentary, directed by Mike Eisenberg, the son of patient safety pioneer and Memphis native Dr. John M. Eisenberg. 

Medical mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year, making it the #3 leading cause of death in the United States. This is a documentary about the silent epidemic of preventable harm in medicine and the people working behind the scenes to fix it. The movie features dozens of leaders in health care and policy, as well as a compelling story of one family's journey from victim to empowered patient advocate.

The documentary will be released in late 2018, but this event, sponsored by Memphis Business Group on Health, the Southern College of Optometry, and the Memphis Medical District Collaborative, is an exclusive opportunity for the Memphis community to view the documentary well in advance of its public release. And, you get a chance to meet the film makers!

After the film, Cristie Upshaw Travis, MBGH CEO, will moderate a panel discussion with Baptist Memorial Health Care, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, Regional One Health, and Saint Francis Healthcare about the film and its topics related to patient safety.
