Chapter 12 discusses the increasing implementation of apology in hospital procedures and policies, as well as highlights both its benefits and the illusions about its benefits, each of which has promoted its administrative acceptance. It also discusses how apology has been interwoven into recent legislation, passed by a majority of US states in an effort to manage malpractice costs. The implication of these initiatives for medicine in general and radiology in particular are also discussed.
