I ask people I'm interviewing about the life of Yogiraj Charles Bates three questions:
1. What's a favorite memory you have of Yogiraj?
2. Before Yogiraj died in 2012, did you know that medical errors contribute to harm and death?
3. At your next medical appointment, whether you are a clinician, patient, or care supporter, can you imagine saying something like this (in your own words):
I'm committed to uniting with you to make this medical care safe. Please let me know what I can do to help us prioritize safety.
Here are several links to give you ideas on how to ensure that prioritizing the safe delivery of medical care impacts patients, clinicians, and the loved ones of everyone.
