“We invest tens of billions to find cures for disease but barely a fraction of that to find cures for one of the world’s biggest killers — medical errors. This important documentary conveys just how big a mistake that is. It also shows how we can do better. For the problem isn’t bad clinicians. It’s the complexity that good clinicians have to deal with everyday.”

Atul Gawande (Surgeon, Writer, Public Health Researcher)


“On the cutting edge for making changes in our healthcare system.”

Donna Shalala (Former Secretary of Health and Human Services)

“To Err is Human, but our patients deserve better from the health care system. The message is gripping and the stories beautifully told. Watch and you will be compelled to act.”

Risa Lavizzo-Mourey (President Emerita, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation)


“This thoughtful, inspiring film casts a spotlight on the urgent need for the medical profession to become more transparent and communicative. To Err Is Human is a critical reminder that being a patient is itself a high-risk undertaking. In many cases individuals end up fighting powerful systems on their own, and more involvement with health-care frequently does not translate to better health. Too often it’s just the opposite.”

James Hamblin (Physician, Author, Senior Editor at The Atlantic)

“This movie is a powerful assessment of the state of medical error and patient safety in the US: the problem, the history, the solutions, and the haunting human impact. Its story of hope, fear, and possibility demonstrates unambiguously why we must place a high priority on the work of agencies like AHRQ that work to keep patients safe.”

Helen Haskell (Founder of Mothers Against Medical Error)
