    Well, it might be the same one....Josie King was 18mos old when she died at John's Hopkins due to dehydration and after her mother kept saying there was something wrong. It was found that the healthcare personnel through poor communication allowed her to become very dehydrated and no one listened to her mother. There was a large lawsuit, and the King family has provided endowments and education so that it will never happen again. My research showed that Pittsburgh Shadyside instituted the first Condition H after the VP of Patient Care heard Sorrel King speak during an Institute of Health seminar and decided that as a group, healthcare could do better as patient advocates.

    We'll see, personally I think there are never enough eyes and ears.
