Heart Doc VIP with Dr. Joel Kahn

Jun 7, 2019

There is some "good" news that is out but it is shocking for sure. The third leading cause of death overall in the USA is medical errors made in hospitals during treatment. Estimates from 200,000 to 400,000 deaths a year occur due to mistakes. Even more shocking is that the number of people seriously harmed that do not die may be 10-20 times higher! A brand new report suggests that number may have dropped to 161,000 deaths in the USA but still a gross and distressing number. If you can, stay out of hospitals. If you are in the hospital, have family members stay with you, even if overnight.
