Medical error at a children's hospital

The Boston Globe has printed another good article on the recent deaths at the local children's hospital, this time focusing on the systemic, root causes (still a matter of conjecture) and considering whether there's something in the culture of teaching hospitals -- or at least some of them -- that stands in the way of effective communication, accountability, appropriate decision making, and safe system design. Important questions all.
