Abstract

Ernest Amory Codman had an early penchant fondness for recording surgical complications and analyzing these recordings to determine a surgeon's ability along with a hospital's efficiency. This idea and the actions that followed suit in his career were not well received by his fellow colleagues. However, Codman's influence and spirit remained and helped shape important institutions in American medicine such as the The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
