It can be very difficult to detect if a medical error occurred, particularly with critically ill patients. Few of us understand enough about medicine to know when standard procedures were not followed, when a doctor should have done more, or when a health care professional was negligent. We must place our trust in medical professionals — and we must hold them accountable.
