ABSTRACT
The author proposes that health care workers who responded to national disasters should advocate for quality improvement at hospitals in the U.S. Philosopher Eliezer Berkovitz believes that doing good work in the name of the victims is a true memorial as a stone wall. He considers the prevention of creating accidental victims due to medical mistake as the greatest memorial that health care workers can provide to victims and heroes of natural disasters and premeditated violence.
