Medical mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year, making it the number three leading cause of death in the United States. Directed by the son of late patient safety pioneer, Dr. John M. Eisenberg, To Err Is Human is an in-depth documentary about this silent epidemic and those working behind the scenes to create a new age of patient safety. Through interviews with leaders in health care, footage of real-world efforts leading to safer care, and one family's compelling journey from tragedy to triumph, the film provides a unique look at our health care system's ongoing fight against preventable harm.
