The New York Times (7/1, A11, Lafraniere, Subscription Publication) reports that yesterday Pentagon senior health official Dr. Jonathan Woodson announced the armed forces’ hospital network had to work hard before it could restore public trust. In particular, “He called for greater attention to patient safety and more openness about problems in treatment,” stating that, “In moments like these, it can be easy to close down. We need to do the opposite. We need to become even more transparent.”
