Doctor in the House: Patient Safety is Paramount

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Have you, as a patient, ever felt that your safety was at risk while receiving care? Or if you are a healthcare provider, have you ever wished you could devote more time to each patient but were overstretched in terms of time and energy? If so, you’re not alone. Globally, 134 million adverse events, due to unsafe care in the health system, contribute to 2.6 million deaths each year. Patient safety is not a peripheral issue, but a central one to healthcare today. Here to speak with us on the issue are consultant urologist Dr George Lee and Manvir Victor, Chairman of Patients for Patient Safety Malaysia.
