Stay Out of Hospitals to Live Longer

Pretty sad to read an internet news article entitled “Don’t let a hospital kill you” but that is becoming the state of affairs in our for-profit medical world. “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 99,000 people die each year because of infections acquired in the hospital”. This is an unacceptable number.

Sloppiness, a “this kind of thing happens” mentality and a focus on profit instead of patient care are just some of the reasons why this is happening in America.┬áThe article linked to above from CNN.com lists a few things to help prevent the infections that are killing people when they go to the hospital. Well worth reading before your next visit.
