Jesica’s Story

A U.S. News & World Report, 2003:

Jesica’s story is a heartbreaking one. The system failed. Doctors are human just like everyone else and errors are unavoidable, but systems can be designed to practically eliminate all mistakes. System’s need an owner or some ownership in order to receive the necessary attention. The entire system needs dedicated responsible ownership. Although, it can’t always be done and costs, no matter what your desires may be, are important factors. Affordable, stable, secure systems that will work are out there but need creation, ownership, and funding. Dr. Jaggers may feel ultimately responsible but leadership failed in terms of creating a more reliable environment. Leadership can push better structures and more systematic schemes that give doctors the best chance to succeed. In all cases, hospital leadership and organ procurement organizations should seek the best possible and affordable systems in order to thrive.
