Systems should be put in place to catch mistakes. Absolutely.

But the lack of accountability from those making mistakes is alarming. The supervisors, practitioners, whomever. If I make a big enough mistake in my job that results in money loss, I lose my job. Your article makes it sound like doctors who make mistakes suffer no consequences at all. If this is the case, it is highly alarming, especially when their mistakes can lead to loss of life – all the while charging the patients’ for their high-cost services. Doctors making these mistakes should be barred from practicing. Supervisors should lose their positions.

It seems the medical community is in need of an overhaul, much like the banking sector after the recession. For being the ones tasked with saving lives, and for something so incredibly damaging as death being the result, you would think there would already be systems and checks in place to prevent incompetence.

Is that not the best way to stop the virus from going viral?
