Abstract Research shows that patients who take a proactive attitude toward even the simplest of medical procedures can greatly reduce the risks of a hospital stay. This program explores that idea in detail, illustrating ways for hospitalized individuals-regardless of their background or education level-to monitor what is happening to them and make sure all appropriate safety measures have been taken. Viewers will learn how to maintain basic awareness when facing surgery, anesthesia, IV's, medication, and more. Commentary from Dr. William Hendee of the National Patient Safety Foundation and Dr. Lucian Leape of the Harvard School of Public Health is included.
