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.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss research studies concerning heart attack survival rates.  The studies found that if patients suffering arterial blockage heart attacks did not receive an angioplasti procedure within 90 minutes upon arriving in the ER the risk of death increased dramatically.  In fact one study found the risk of death increased by 42% if the procedure was not administered within the 90 minute time frame.  Another study found that angioplasties given hours or days following the heart attack did not reduce the risk of a second heart attack.  Some experts even believe if the procedure is performed later rather than sooner it may be harmful to the patient.
