"Dr. Thrall is one of our nation's foremost thought leaders in Radiology. During an interview we were conducting regarding the heroes of patient safety, he related an incredibly powerful and beautiful metaphor shared by a patient transporter at a graduation ceremony at Massachusetts General Hospital. Not only is the metaphor of great impact, but the impression it left on Dr. Thrall reflects the commitment and depth of caring that the great physicians in our country share. This short clip will provide a wonderful introduction to any performance improvement meeting of clinicians, staff, trustees, or administrators.
