Book Summary: This book is the result of Dr. Alan Bruce (A. Bruce) Clark’s decades of study, and it discusses the impact of the world’s major events upon the Annual, Federal Holidays of the United States of America, which start with New Year’s Day and end with Christmas Day. Dr. Clark wrote corporate histories for Historic Houston, a book that President George H. W. Bush also helped write and Dr. Clark, for several years, wrote the monthly feature articles in the E. W. Forbes Report, which received written praise from many world-renown leaders, including Dr. Denton Cooley who performed the first heart transplant in the USA. He wrote these articles before the death of Elroy Forbes, a Vietnam War veteran exposed to Agent Orange and honored by multiple Houston mayors with an "E. W. Forbes Day." ​​​​​​​​​​ In a strict sense, there are no national holidays when every person living in the United States is not working. However, there are eleven holidays that the Federal Government of the USA declared as annual celebrations. Five of these holidays occur on specific dates, provided the calendar days do not occur on weekends, while the dates for the other six holidays vary from year to year. This book is the result of Professor Clark’s providing handouts to his students about each Annual Federal Holiday, and their encouraging Alan Bruce Clark, PhD to compile the articles into an easy-to-read, interesting book. Dr. Clark wrote this book to show the terrific contributions made to America by those of different racial heritages, genders and creeds. As for Dr. Clark's ancestry it includes those who came to the United States on the Mayflower and his predecessors are buried in Hickory Grove Cemetery in Waverly, Pennsylvania along with the Underground Railroad African-Americans they supported. Thus, this work incorporated insights provided by African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Native-Americans. As noted, even the New Year's celebration, which did not originally occur on January 1, has elements of the world's major ethnic groups. History buffs, patriotic Americans, teachers wanting a unique required textbook for their students, librarians, active military personnel, veterans, children, teenagers, young adults, retirees, seniors, citizens, residents, business leaders, community leaders, political leaders, unions and even those who do business with American companies and/or are contemplating a visit or moving to the "land of opportunity" will greatly benefit from this book. This is due to its providing details on the history and customs behind the New Year's Day, Birthday of Martin Luther, King, Jr., Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Juneteenth National Independence Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day Celebrations. This book even has events planned through 2025 and is dedicated to all Americans past, present and future. It is because of their devotion, determination and hard work that the United States became a great nation and that it can become even better.​​​​​​​ Each annual holiday has its own rich heritage, which all Americans, regardless of their personal beliefs, can appreciate and respect. The reason is that the sacrifices of others made the USA great. More importantly, the United States can become even better with your dedication and commitment. Having said these things, it is hoped that you will enjoy this trip through the Annual Federal Holidays of the United States of America! Businesspersons can give this book to clients, employees and schools. Likewise, government officials can present this book to military personnel and other public servants to let them know that their efforts are deeply appreciated, while teachers can order this book for their history, American culture and U.S. citizenship courses. Dr. Clark thanks you for your interest in this book and hopes that it will bless you in a very special way.

To Err Is Human

Book Summary: Experts estimate that as many as 98,000 people die in any given year from medical errors that occur in hospitals. That's more than die from motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer, or AIDSâ€"three causes that receive far more public attention. Indeed, more people die annually from medication errors than from workplace injuries. Add the financial cost to the human tragedy, and medical error easily rises to the top ranks of urgent, widespread public problems. To Err Is Human breaks the silence that has surrounded medical errors and their consequenceâ€"but not by pointing fingers at caring health care professionals who make honest mistakes. After all, to err is human. Instead, this book sets forth a national agendaâ€"with state and local implicationsâ€"for reducing medical errors and improving patient safety through the design of a safer health system. This volume reveals the often startling statistics of medical error and the disparity between the incidence of error and public perception of it, given many patients' expectations that the medical profession always performs perfectly. A careful examination is made of how the surrounding forces of legislation, regulation, and market activity influence the quality of care provided by health care organizations and then looks at their handling of medical mistakes. Using a detailed case study, the book reviews the current understanding of why these mistakes happen. A key theme is that legitimate liability concerns discourage reporting of errorsâ€"which begs the question, "How can we learn from our mistakes?" Balancing regulatory versus market-based initiatives and public versus private efforts, the Institute of Medicine presents wide-ranging recommendations for improving patient safety, in the areas of leadership, improved data collection and analysis, and development of effective systems at the level of direct patient care. To Err Is Human asserts that the problem is not bad people in health careâ€"it is that good people are working in bad systems that need to be made safer. Comprehensive and straightforward, this book offers a clear prescription for raising the level of patient safety in American health care. It also explains how patients themselves can influence the quality of care that they receive once they check into the hospital. This book will be vitally important to federal, state, and local health policy makers and regulators, health professional licensing officials, hospital administrators, medical educators and students, health caregivers, health journalists, patient advocatesâ€"as well as patients themselves. First in a series of publications from the Quality of Health Care in America, a project initiated by the Institute of Medicine
