Healthcare: Is your hospital taking a team-based approach to healthcare? Do you think it's the best way to improve patient care?

Comments: 1

I do not think that hospitals in Texas should have a team-based approach, simply because of the peer-review process. Peer review simply means to coverup negligence and not be transparent with patients with mistakes that are being made. Team based approaches impose long term affects in that it lacks practitioner oversight and discipline. These actions have caused serious physical harm to patients by allowing notorious repeat offenders of negligence to continue to practice medicine with no legal recourse. Improving patient safety is building trust and keeping the oath that patients come first.
