ALTERNATIVES TO HOSPITAL CARE AND MEDICAL ERRORS


FIRST, SOME HIFHLIGHTS FROM DR. MERCOLA’S SITE ARTICLE:

Nearly 250,000 Deaths From ONE Common Mistake: Here's How to Protect Yourself at:

These are just some excerpts and you should read the entire short article. Then, when you realize modern so-called medicine offers little more than playing Russian Roulette with a machine gun, you can check out some of the alternative medicine solutions offered below. Prevention is the best medicine, but in our polluted world, toxicity and disease are becoming the norm. At the end, we offer both solutions, prevention and treatment. We cannot use the word cure, even if true, but neither should allopathic medicine which only offers symptom suppression in the form of drugs and surgery.

HIGHLIGHTS:

“HealthGrades has been studying the quality of care in the nation's hospitals since 1988. This year they analyzed approximately 40 million Medicare patients' records from 2007 through 2009, and found that 1 in 9 patients developed a hospital-acquired infection.”

“The HealthGrades report said that "the incidence rate of medical harm occurring is estimated to be over 40,000 each and EVERY day according to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement."”

Horpital-Acquired Infections

“Another study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine this year, showed that sepsis and pneumonia caused by hospital-acquired infections killed 48,000 patients and ramped up health care costs by $8.1 billion in 2006 alone. Both these infections are mostly preventable through better infection controls. The study also found that 20 percent of people who developed sepsis died; 11 percent of those who developed pneumonia died.”

“The authors noted that many hospital-acquired infections are super resistant to common antibiotics – and it's not just sepsis and pneumonia that they're talking about.”

“A different study in 2006 showed that "central-line-associated" bloodstream infections caused by catheters placed directly into veins resulted in a $26,839 loss for each patient that came down with this type of hospital-acquired infection. This same study estimated that 2 million people come down with hospital-acquired infections of any type in every year, and that approximately 100,000 die from those infections.” (Underlined section by blog editor)

Medication Errors are a Major Killer

“In a June 2010 report in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, study authors said that in looking over records that spanned from 1976 to 2006 (the most recent year available) they found that, of 62 million death certificates, almost a quarter-million deaths were coded as having occurred in a hospital setting due to medication errors. They also found that these errors spiked in July, and particularly in teaching hospitals.”

Nearly Half a Million Preventable Adverse Drug Reactions

“An estimated 450,000 preventable medication-related adverse events occur in the U.S. every year.”

“Adverse drug reactions cause injuries or death in 1 of 5 hospital patients.”

WE HAVE FOUND THESE TO BE REPUTABLE METHODS BASED ON MANY YEARS OF POSITIVE RESULTS AND EVEN CLINICAL STUDIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD. YOU BE THE JUDGE. BUT DO NOT WAIT FOR AN EMERGENCY; LEARN NOW WHAT YOUR OPTIONS ARE SO YOU DO NOT BECOME A VICTOM OF THE STATISTICS REFERENCED ABOVE!
