AMERICAN PATIENT RIGHTS ASSOCIATION
American Patient Rights Association is an independent, nonprofit consumer organization of people for fair, safe, transparent and ethical health care, who are no longer willing to accept a medical system that:
- puts profit before patient's lives
- won't revoke the medical license or reveal the names of dangerous doctors
- threatens medical professionals who expose patient harm
- won't accept medical error as a cause of death
- allows hospitals to pay the organization that inspects them
- is secretive and hides potential threats to patients
- won't make patient safety a priority
APRA was established to provide a voice for consumers in our healthcare system, to create a movement for fair, safe, transparent health care and to provide a resource for people who wish to protect themselves and their family from preventable physical and financial harm when they seek medical care.
To provide the leadership, education and advocacy for the right of healthcare consumers to receive safe, fair and transparent medical services and goods.
Medical care for all that is free of preventable harm.
APRA reflects the desire to close the gap between the health care we have and the health care we deserve by fighting the runaway corporate greed which too often denies patients fair and safe treatment, or any treatment at all, causing preventable harm to so many and to our country.
