Monologue

Dr. Wallach discusses CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) statistics regarding medical mistakes that harm or kill patients.  Over 2 million people aqquire infections while in the hosptial each year, of thos 90,000 die.  A total of 5.8 million casualties in hospitals and clinics each year and no OSHA tickets are handed out.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss three recent studies published in the American Journal of Medical Quality.  Two studies found that the infections caught during hospital stays were more to blame on hospital procedures than how sick the patient was when he or she checked in.  A third study found that the infections actually cost the hospitals money rather than making them money.
