For my research essay, I’ll be examining the accountability of Doctors in Medicine. Throughout the years, Doctor accountability has been a problem. In 1999, the Institute of Medicine released a report to improve doctor accountability because there were tragic deaths due to small mistakes. About 1 million people are harmed because of infections or surgical mistakes.
Medical Personnel make these small mistakes that can cause harm to people or even death. These mistakes can be fixed, however, the company does not look into the mistakes made by the medical personnel. These mistakes will only change if the medical personnel are held accountable for these small mistakes. They will try harder and try not to make mistakes during work.
