Announcement from ProPublica:

Today, ProPublica launches our new patient safety section - http://www.propublica.org/article/how-you-can-help-propublica-investigate-health-care-quality - where readers and providers can be part of the patient safety conversation, get regular updates and share stories or views.  The section will include links to many of our healthcare investigations, questionnaires for patients and healthcare providers, information on our Facebook patient harm group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/patientharm/ - (where nearly 1,000 people share their personal stories of medical mistakes) and more.

The section also has:

   * Six recommendations on what to do if you've been harmed in a medical facility; - http://www.propublica.org/article/what-to-do-if-youve-suffered-harm
   * an interview with Dr. Marty Makary about why patient harm is one of the leading causes of death in America; - http://www.propublica.org/article/qa-marty-makary-m.d.-author-of-unaccountable
   * how to deal with the media in telling your story; - http://www.propublica.org/article/tips-on-dealing-with-the-media-part-i
   * and a music video about being over-prescribed pills.

We hope you'll join our patient harm community and share it with others.  See "Patient Safety: Exploring Quality Health Care in the U.S." here - http://www.propublica.org/series/patient-safety.
