“Compassion, honesty, and transparency are at the core of healing relationships. CARe speaks to our need to treat patients and families with respect and dignity when a preventable medical error occurs. Because 1/3 of physicians have experienced a medical error occurring to themselves or a loved one as a patient, CARe also speaks to what clinicians want for themselves and family members.”
Randolph Peto, MD, MPH, Medical Director for Quality and Patient Safety, Baystate Medical Center
"The CARe program is good for patients, providers, and our overarching goal of improving patient safety. Neither patients nor providers benefit from the current system where it can take years to resolve one case and in the end nobody wins. The CARe program is simply the right solution because it's the right thing to do."
Peter Smulowitz, MD, Emergency Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
“Massachusetts hospitals are committed to always improving the quality and safety of the care they provide to patients. Aside from being fair to caregivers and patients, MACRMI's communication, apology, and resolution initiative will help advance this fundamental quality-improvement agenda by fostering open discussion among clinicians about the causes of adverse outcomes and the steps that need to be taken to avoid them in the future.”
