Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bristol heart scandal occurred in England during the 1990s. At the Bristol Royal Infirmary, babies died at high rates after cardiac surgery. An inquiry found "staff shortages, a lack of leadership, [a] ... unit ... 'simply not up to the task' ... 'an old boy's culture' among doctors, a lax approach to safety, secrecy about doctors' performance and a lack of monitoring by management." The scandal resulted in cardiac surgeons leading efforts to publish more data on the performance of doctors and hospitals.Stephen Nicholas Cluley Bolsin (born in 1952) is a British anaesthetist who became famous as the whistleblower whose actions to prevent incompetent paediatric cardiac surgery at the Bristol Royal Infirmary lead to the implementation of clinical governance reforms in the United Kingdom.show more
