Monologue

Nurse Joanne Conaway fills in for Dr. Wallach.  Joanne starts the show discuss a study that has found the cholesterol drug Vytorin does not work.  It doesn't control plaque buildup in the arteries as advertised.  It has also been linked to an increased risk of cancer in patients taking the drug.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Joanne Conaway discuss a study that concluded most patients leaving the ER after treatment don't understand the post-treatment instructions they are given by hospital staff.  In fact 78% of patients did not understand at least one of the following; the diagnosis, cause of symptoms, the care received, discharge recommendations or return visit instructions.  While 80% were unaware that they did not understand all they were told in the ER.
