The tough-minded and revealing story of a leading doctors crusade against medical harm...Fascinating reading. -Atul Gawande, author of The Checklist Manifesto. First, do no harm. Doctors, nurses, and clinicians swear by this code of conduct. Yet, medical errors are made every single day-avoidable mistakes that often cost lives. Inspired by two such mistakes, Dr. Peter Pronovost made it his personal mission to improve patient safety and make preventable deaths a thing of the past, one hospital at a time.

His reforms are being implemented in all fifty states and have saved hundreds of lives by cutting hospital-acquired infection rates by 70%. Atul Gawande profiled Dr. Pronovosts reforms in a New Yorkerarticle and his bestselling book The Checklist Manifestois based upon Dr. Pronovosts success in patient safety. But Safe Patients, Smart Hospitalsis the real story: an inspiring, thought-provoking, accessible insiders narrative about how doctors and nurses are improving patient care for all Americans, today.
