MITSS Hope Award nominations

I am pleased to post this announcement from MITSS (Medically Induced Trauma Support Services, Inc.)

Nominations are now being accepted for the Third Annual MITSS HOPE Award. The MITSS HOPE Award was established in 2008 to recognize people -- patients, families, health care providers, hospitals (or teams or departments therein), academic institutions, community health centers, grass roots organizations, EAP programs, etc. -- who exemplify the mission of MITSS: Supporting healing and restoring hope to patients, families, and clinicians impacted by adverse medical events, medical errors, or unexpected outcomes.

This year’s award is being sponsored by rL Solutions, and the winner will receive a $5000 cash prize to continue their work. The award will be presented at the MITSS 9th Annual Dinner to be held at The Westin Copley Place on Thursday, November 4, 2010. Visit here for eligibility criteria, submission requirements, deadlines, and more. Nominate someone who is doing great work (including yourself!)

I'd like to read about some personal experiences from those folks who've suffered adverse events at the hands of understaffed hopitals.
