Derek Steele shares in his first book titled Addict at 10, how he overcame addiction, homelessness, and poverty to reach extraordinary success personally and professionally. A full-blown addict by age 10, Derek walked in a dangerous and chaotic world until that “final deal” woke him up to the reality of what his future could hold in a life of sobriety. As he struggled through the recovery process, he discovered his true gift of entrepreneurial spirit and became a multi-millionaire by the age of 35. A new 2010 Patient Safety in American Hospitals study shows that 99-thousand patient deaths at U.S. hospitals could have been prevented. And in a separate study, researchers found that fatal medical errors at teaching hospitals peak in the month of July – creating the “July Effect”. So, the question is… What will it take to make hospitals safer? Joining us with an insider's view of the latest medical technologies that are helping save lives and transform healthcare is Dr. Michael Ramsay and Dr. Thomas Crimi, both experts in the field of blood and pain management.
