Leapfrog and Patient Safety Movement Foundation to Co-host Screening & Panel Discussion on HBO Documentary "BLEED OUT" on Capitol Hill

January 16, 2020


After a routine partial hip replacement operation leaves his mother in a coma with permanent brain damage, a son’s video diary becomes a citizen’s investigation into American healthcare. Shot over the course of 10 years, using archival footage, verite scenes, undercover spy cams, courtroom testimony and interviews with family and experts, BLEED OUT goes deep inside the flawed healthcare system.


Many Americans are unaware that preventable medical errors in hospitals are the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind only cancer and heart disease. Shedding light on this issue can empower patients to take control of their hospital experience and more importantly, may even save their lives. This event brings Members of Congress, Congressional staff, and other stakeholders together to educate them on preventable medical errors in hospitals and highlight the important role that Congress can play in improving patient safety.


January 27, 2020 from 5:00-7:00 PM 


Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2044 (45 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20515)
