Sorrel King Maryland
Sorrel King

In 2001 Sorrel King's daughter, Josie, died as a result of medical errors. Consumed by grief Sorrel was determined to honor Josie's memory. She and her husband created the Josie King Foundation. Setting out to prevent patients from being harmed or killed by medical errors, she entered a world unknown to her-the health care industry.

Sorrel King has become a nationally renowned patient safety advocate. As a public speaker she travels the country spreading her message to hospitals, doctors, nurses, CEOS, board members, medical/ nursing students, delivering graduation keynote addresses and more in hopes that Josie's story will inspire change thus creating a better, safer healthcare industry for us all.

Sorrel has spoken to hundreds of organizations reaching thousands of healthcare professionals.

The Josie King Foundation has created projects and programs such as:

  • The Josie King Story DVD (available through the foundation)
  • Care Journal
  • Nursing Journal
  • Condition H
  • Disclosure program
  • Patient Journal App
  • Josie's Story: A Patient Safety Curriculum created in partnership with health educators from Duke University Health system.

These projects and programs have been implemented by hospitals around the country.

Sorrel's book, Josie's Story, was published in September 2009 by Grove/Atlantic, Inc. Josie's Story was named one of the best health books in 2009 by the Wall Street Journal and won the "First Book" award at the 2010 "Books for a Better Life" Awards. Josie's Story is being used in medical and nursing schools around the country. Sorrel was chosen as one of "50 Women Changing the World" by Woman's Day magazine in February 2010.

Sorrel has appeared on the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, Good Morning America with Charlie Gibson and was featured in a Forbes magazine article titled "Fixing Hospitals in 2005." On July 21, 2004, Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy (D-RI) introduced the "Josie King Act" as a tribute to Ms. King's work and Josie's life.
