Peer Review (still) doesn’t work

I’ve been writing about how peer review privilege encourages medical error for years now. But it keeps coming up in the news. It’s almost like nobody in charge listens to trial lawyers. lol.

The false premise that secrecy encourages patient safety measures at any level of hospital administration is a myth that should not be allowed to persist. Medical error continues to contribute to an unacceptable level of mortality in health care and there isn’t anything happening in these secret proceedings to curtail or limit the deaths and injuries. More transparency can only help.
