Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing all of the medical errors that occur in the U.S. every year.  Each year 5.8 million Americans are injured, killed or infected in hospitals.  Additional 9.2 million are injured, killed or infected in clinics and doctor's office settings.  This totals to 15 million Americans are injured, killed or infected in the U.S. and not one OSHA ticket is issued.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss two news articles concerning doctors and medical errors.  The first concerns a doctor who relinquished his medical license after he was accused of writing several pain kill prescriptions to just 5 people with no explanation.  Second Doug and Doc discuss an article concerning protection against wrong site, wrong side and wrong patient surgeries.
