Jan. 22 — Documentary filmed at School of Nursing now available for download To Err is Human, a documentary filmed partially at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis and includes interviews with school faculty, is now available for download on iTunes and Amazon. To Err is Human examines patient safety in the United States: the No. 3 leading cause of death in the nation. Studies show 1.7 million Americans experience a preventable mistake during health care and these mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 deaths annually. Directed by the son of late patient-safety pioneer and physician John M. Eisenberg, this in-depth documentary is about a silent epidemic and those working behind the scenes to create a new age of patient safety. Through interviews with leaders in health care, footage of real-world efforts leading to safer care and one family’s journey, the film provides a look at the future of the health care system’s ongoing fight against preventable harm. Sections of the documentary, which was filmed at UC Davis Health in December 2016, highlight some of the content in courses that prepare future providers, as well as the simulation resources for students to practice and experience opportunities to prevent patient harm. The school presented a screening to students in April.
