"Without unity, anesthesiologists cannot protect the public from those who endeavor to limit patient access to an anesthesiologist's care or compromise patient safety with cost-cutting measures designed by those who stand to profit most."

President’s Blog July 2016
By Mark Zakowski, MD
I’d like to share some thoughts on what the future holds this year as I finish my first six weeks as President of the CSA.
First of all, my goal is for CSA to be the leader for patient safety in California. I am so proud that CSA’s House of Delegates on June 5 unanimously passed the first-ever “Patient Safety Bill of Rights”, which promotes patient safety and uniform standards of care across the continuum from sedation through general anesthesia.
This resolution supports one goal: that all anesthetics administered in every location apply the same standards of care that physician anesthesiologists developed, are known for, and use every day. Anesthesiology, after all, is the only medical specialty to be singled out for significantly improving patient safety in the landmark 1999 Institute of Medicine report, “To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System”. .
