Unaccountable – The Latest from Dr. Marty Makary AND New Critical Issues for Patient
Safety Leaders
 Session Overview

Join surgeon and best-selling author Martin Makary, MD, as he discusses his recently published book Unaccountable. Dr. Makary is a practicing surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital and an associate professor of health policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. A medical commentator for CNN and FOXNews, he speaks regularly on the sociology of medicine and the future of healthcare. Dr. Makary led the effort of the World Health Organization (WHO) to measure hospital complications and was the first to publish studies on the use of a checklist in surgery. He later worked closely with Dr. Atul Gawande to develop the official WHO checklist. Dr. Gawande credits the co-development of the surgical checklist to Dr. Makary in his best-selling book, The Checklist Manifesto.

Martin A. Makary, MD, MPH: Unaccountable – As a busy surgeon who has worked in many of the best hospitals in the nation, Dr. Makary can testify to the amazing power of modern medicine to cure. But he's also been a witness to a medical culture that routinely leaves surgical sponges inside patients; amputates the wrong limbs; and overdoses children because of sloppy handwriting. Over the last ten years, neither error rates nor costs have come down, despite scientific progress and efforts to curb expenses. Why? To patients, the healthcare system is a black box. Doctors and hospitals are unaccountable, and the lack of transparency leaves both bad doctors and systemic flaws unchecked. Patients need to know more of what healthcare workers know, so they can make informed choices. Accountability in healthcare would expose dangerous doctors; reward good performance; and force positive change nationally, using the power of the free market. Unaccountable is a powerful, no-nonsense, non-partisan diagnosis for healing our hospitals and reforming our broken healthcare system.
Linda K. Groah, RN, the Executive Director of the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN), will participate as a reactor to Dr. Makary and will provide color and texture to "The Magnitude of Surgical and Non-Surgical Sharps Injuries." Following the presentations, a panel of experts will share their reactions to the presentations and answer questions from the webinar participants. Dr. Denham, Sharon Rossmark, vice chairman of the board of directors for the Sinai Health System, Franck Guilloteau, who is the CTO of TMIT, and Jennifer Dingman, a national patient safety advocate, participate as reactors to the discussion topics.
