It’s the ENVY of the world.
“Basic errors by the medical staff in NHS hospitals are causing 12,000 deaths every year, reveals a deatiled study by researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The researchers found that with 13% of the patients, who died in NHS hospitals, something went wrong. 5.2%, equivalent to 11,859, of these deaths were caused by basic errors and could have been easily prevented.
Helen Hogan, the study leader explained, “We found medical staff were not doing the basics well enough – monitoring blood pressure and kidney function, for example. They were also not assessing patients holistically early enough in their admission so they didn’t miss any underlying condition. And they were not checking side-effects… before prescribing drugs.”
