Often, emergency departments are overcrowded. This can lead to doctors or nurses skipping steps when it comes to treating patients. If this happens and they miss symptoms a person is experiencing, they could misdiagnose or discharge someone without proper treatment. There are even times when those who are uninsured or under insured receive a lower standard of care. That’s not right or fair.
Hospitals are also notorious for spreading infections. The CDC estimates that 1 in every 25 hospital patients acquire an infection every day. Whether because of improper cleaning or infections at IV and surgical sites, these are preventable injuries that could seriously worsen a patient’s condition.
When it comes to surgery, most of the time there are multiple checks along the way to ensure that the surgeon operates on the right person and is performing the correct procedure. We’ve all heard the horror stories of people losing the wrong limb or having the wrong part worked on, but it is often the cases we don’t hear about that injure or kill. A recent Mayo Clinic study found that surgeons admitted to major mistakes that cost people their lives.
Another common but preventable mistake is patient medication mix ups. From giving patients the wrong meds to administering the wrong dosage, there is no reason this should happen to anyone.
