Dr. J relays a shocking fact – The most frequent cause of injury or death to patients in hospitals are: wrong treatment, wrong surgery, wrong drugs, wrong dosage, wrong patient! 

Hospitals have created many fail safes but there are so many people in the system now, that the system frequently gets something wrong.

Doctors, who go back as patients, find that they are at risk of wrong treatment, including surgery!  Dr. Bunny tells of a harrowing experience when she was out of town.  Suddenly ill, she went to the hospital and though she was only passing a kidney stone, was told she was scheduled to have a kidney removed!

Ninety-nine percent of people in hospitals do not need to be there, Dr. J exclaims.  Most people can take their medicines at home.  Dr. J reminds us that we must be aware of what treatments are being offered to us.  Mistakes can be avoided.

Know your doctor.   Know that the doctor has a checklist that he or she must follow.  Talk to your doctor and understand the list!  Plan to have your spouse or a friend advocate for you in case of emergency – you may be unconscious at the time you need treatment.

Listen to this week’s show for more fascinating details – Dr. Jay likens a pilot’s checklist to a doctor’s checklist.  (He is a pilot also!) Find out more about Dr. Bunny’s hospital experience and how she prevailed!  It will make you sit up, take notice, and make changes in your health plan!
