Last week the Minnesota Department of Health released its fifth annual report on adverse events that cause harm to patients. There's a human cost to patients, their families and to health care providers when patients are harmed, and it's only been within the past few years that it has started to be openly talked about. HealthBeat,the West Central Tribune's health care blog, examines the emotional toll of medical injury and error in a special series this week.
