my friend you have to read a little more widely to disabuse yourself of the thought that your country is hell…see this CNN report…

ER waiting game – A long ER wait cost Malia Jeffers her limbs. Doctors had to amputate Jeffers entire left hand, fingers on her right, and both her legs after staff at an emergency department made her wait nearly five hours while a flesh eating bacteria rapidly spread through her tiny body. An ER nurse wrongly assessed Jeffers’ condition as a less serious virus.

Air bubbles in blood – Blake Fought died in the hospital on the day he was scheduled to be discharged. He was sitting upright when a nurse removed his central line chest tube and covered the hole in his chest with gauze. Air entered the wound and formed bubbles in his blood that cut off blood flow to his major organs. Fought should have been lying down, and the nurse should have sealed the hole airtight.

Operating on the wrong body part – Jesse Matlock had a wandering right eye. A simple surgery could fix it, but the surgeon cut into the left eye instead of the right. According to Matlock’s mother, Tasha Gual, the surgeon told her she lost her sense of direction and didn’t realize she’d operated on the wrong eye until after the operation

Waking up during surgery – When Erin Cook had surgery to have an ovary tumor removed, she remembers going to sleep and then the searing pain of being sliced open. She felt trapped in her body, unable to move or speak. The hospital later informed her, she says, that a gas vaporizer was leaking during her operation and she got only 5% of the anesthesia she needed.

Treating the wrong patient – Kerry Higuera was given a CT scan of her abdomen even though she was three months pregnant. The hospital had confused her with another patient also named Kerry, who was actually supposed to get the scan. The needless imaging increased the risk that Higuera’s unborn baby would get leukemia or have birth defects. Fortunately, her son, Nathan, is doing fine.

[li]Expert: Medical errors kill more than 250,000 people in the United States yearly[/li][li]“Mistakes are happening every day in every hospital in the country,” says top doctor[/li][li]There are strategies you can use to help doctors and nurses get things right[/li][/ul]

When you’re a patient, you trust you’re in good hands, but even the best doctor or nurse can make a mistake on you or someone you love.
“Mistakes are happening every day in every hospital in the country that we’re just not catching,” says Dr. Albert Wu, an internist at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Medical errors kill more than a quarter million people every year in the United States and injure millions. Add them all up and “you have probably the third leading cause of death” in the country, says Dr. Peter Pronovost, an anesthesiologist and critical care physician at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
The harm is often avoidable, and there are strategies you can use to help doctors and nurses get things right.
Here’s a list of 10 shocking medical mistakes and ways to not become a victim:

Surgeons make ‘body-part mix-ups’ 00:57
1. Mistake: Treating the wrong patient
Cause: Hospital staff fails to verify a patient’s identity.
Consequences: Patients with similar names are confused.
Prevention: Before every procedure in the hospital, make sure the staff checks your entire name, date of birth and barcode on your wrist band.
Example case: Kerry Higuera

2. Mistake: Surgical souvenirs
Cause: Surgical staff miscounts (or fails to count) equipment used inside a patient during an operation.
Consequences: Tools get left inside the body.
Prevention: If you have unexpected pain, fever or swelling after surgery, ask if you might have a surgical instrument inside you.
Example case: Nelson Bailey

Elizabeth Cohen, CNN’s senior medical correspondent

[B]3. Mistake: Lost patients
Cause: Patients with dementia are sometimes prone to wandering.
Consequences: Patients may become trapped while wandering and die from hypothermia or dehydration.
Prevention: If your loved one sometimes wanders, consider a GPS tracking bracelet.
Example case: Mary Cole

4. Mistake: Fake doctors
Cause: Con artists pretend to be doctors.
Consequences: Medical treatments backfire. Instead of getting better, patients get sicker.
Prevention: Confirm online that your physician is licensed.
Example case: Sarafina Gerling

5. Mistake: The ER waiting game
Cause: Emergency rooms get backed up when overcrowded hospitals don’t have enough beds.
Consequences: Patients get sicker while waiting for care.
Prevention: Doctors listen to other doctors, so on your way to the hospital call your physician and ask them to call the emergency room.
Example case: Malyia Jeffers

6. Mistake: Air bubbles in blood
Cause: The hole in a patient’s chest isn’t sealed airtight after a chest tube is removed.
Consequences: Air bubbles get sucked into the wound and cut off blood supply to the patient’s lungs, heart, kidneys and brain. Left uncorrected the patient dies.
Prevention: If you have a central line tube in you, ask how you should be positioned when the line comes out.
Example case: Blake Fought

7. Mistake: Operating on the wrong body part
Cause: A patient’s chart is incorrect, or a surgeon misreads it, or surgical draping obscures marks that denote the correct side of the operation.
Consequences: The surgeon cuts into the wrong side of a patient’s body.
Prevention: Just before surgery, make sure you reaffirm with the nurse and the surgeon the correct body part and side of your operation.
Example case: Jesse Matlock

8. Mistake: Infection infestation
Cause: Doctors and nurses don’t wash their hands.
Consequences: Patients can die from infections spread by hospital workers.
Prevention: It may be uncomfortable to ask, but make sure doctors and nurses wash their hands before they touch you, even if they’re wearing gloves.
Example case: Josh Nahum

9. Mistake: Lookalike tubes
Cause: A chest tube and a feeding tube can look a lot alike.
Consequences: Medicine meant for the stomach goes into the chest.
Prevention: When you have tubes in you, ask the staff to trace every tube back to the point of origin so the right medicine goes to the right place.
Example case: Alicia Coleman

10. Mistake: Waking up during surgery
Cause: An under-dose of anesthesia.
Consequences: The brain stays awake while the muscles stay frozen. Most patients aren’t in any pain but some feel every poke, prod and cut.
Prevention: When you schedule surgery, ask your surgeon if you need to be put asleep or if a local anesthetic might work just as well.[/B]

The unfortunate thing is - if an accountant Debits the wrong account, all she needs to do is Credit it back to reverse the mistake… Not so for the doctors. Kueni wapole. They are only human.

The same India is where they have this…Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospital Complex . Aljazeera has a feature on it.
