2 news shows on patient safety

1. The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric will feature a segment about health care quality, with a focus on Don Berwick, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and IHI's 5 Million Lives Campaign. The program also touches specifically on infection reduction efforts at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, led by BIMC’s Director of Infection Control, Dr. Brian Koll. The segment airs Tuesday, February 6th at 6:30 PM Eastern Time.

2. The CBS Early Show is doing a segment on disclosure and apology on Wednesday morning, February 7th. Linda Kenney and Dr. Rick Van Pelt of
Medically Induced Trauma Support Services (MITSS) were interviewed on Friday, but I don’t know what the final piece will look like. I believe that the show runs on Channel 4 from 7 to 9 in the Boston area; be sure to check your local listings.

Thanks to James Madden and IHI for spotting this.
