Week 6 discussion
The Josie King story is one of many compelling stories about what happens in healthcare systems when things go wrong and patients experience sentinel events, including irreparable harm or, as in the case of Josie, death. Josie was an eighteen-month-old toddler who had been admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital for burns she suffered accidentally when her mother was giving her a bath. Josie died from medical errors that could have been avoided. Josie’s mother, Sorrel King, recounts how she tried to alert healthcare providers about her little girl’s changing condition and how she was ignored as her baby continued to decline despite the mother’s pleas for help. Josie died from severe dehydration and misused narcotics.
