Mission

Zero Tolerance for Medical Errors

One of healthcare’s major issues is the lack of communication between clinicians and facilities.

We can learn through mistakes! Discussing negative outcomes enables one to learn from failures and would reduce the possibility of repeating the same error, thereby saving lives.

We need to align ourselves to Improving Quality of Care through Education and Standardization.
