People with Parkinson's disease are in the hospital more often than other individuals their age. A new study found some worrying results for patients with Parkinson's disease that may make them more concerned when they are hospitalized.
When patients go to the hospital, they expect the hospital to follow standard safety procedures to keep them safe. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case and more hospitals are reportedly using dirty needles, leading to serious complications or infections in their patients.
Hospital residents in New York started working fewer hours in an effort to give them more time to sleep as well as improve patient safety. While many experts believed that reducing the number of hours residents could work would decrease medical errors, a new study found that this belief was wrong.
Doctors take an oath to do no harm. They dedicate their lives to healing patients and caring for the sick, but doctors are human and they make mistakes too. Unfortunately, doctor error means unnecessary injuries and suffering for patients in New York and beyond.
