Why Doctors Make Mistakes (9 p.m., Learning Channel) looks at the reasons behind medical errors and what can be done to prevent them (and if all else fails, do like other surgical patients have done -- write detailed instructions on your body so the doc won't take out your kidney when you're actually in for a nose job).
