About the film:

The #3 leading cause of death in the US is its own health care system, with medical mistakes leading to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year. Yet most Americans are unaware of the existence of this problem. To Err Is Human is an in-depth documentary about this silent epidemic and those working quietly behind the scenes to fix it. 

Through interviews with leaders in healthcare, footage of real-world efforts leading to safer care, and one family’s compelling journey from tragedy to triumph, the documentary provides a unique look at our healthcare system’s ongoing fight against preventable harm.

Directed by Michael Eisenberg, the son of late patient safety pioneer Dr. John M. Eisenberg, To Err is Human is named after the groundbreaking 1999 report by the Institute of Medicine (now National Academy of Medicine). Film website:
