Verge Health, the healthcare industry’s leading governance, risk and compliance (GRC) company, invites the Charleston community to an advance screening of the patient safety documentary, To Err is Human. The film screening and a post-screening discussion take place Thursday, November 15th at 7 pm at MUSC’s Storm Eye Institute Auditorium in downtown Charleston.
Medical mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year. To Err is Human is an in-depth documentary about this silent epidemic and those working quietly behind the scenes to create a new age of patient safety. This screening event will focus on the imperative conversation of a new culture of safety in medicine to improve quality of care. The film speaks to healthcare workers, along with the general public, to showcase solutions and changes that could dramatically improve the quality of healthcare.
Through interviews with healthcare leaders, footage of real-world efforts that lead to safer care, and one family’s compelling journey from tragedy to triumph, the film provides an in-depth look at healthcare’s fight against preventable harm.
“We’re looking forward to sharing this impactful documentary with the community. Together we can implement solutions to create an environment focused on safety, quality and healing. Come participate in this extremely important conversation between patients, hospitals and healthcare technology,” said Inge Garrison, Chief Nursing Officer at Verge Health.
