Interns Report More Hospital Errors Due to Shorter Doctor Shifts

ABC World News reported, “There are as many 98,000 deaths each year from mistakes made in America’s hospitals. Some of the blame – exhausted doctors. But the new studies are raising questions about the fix. Interns today report making more mistakes than they did when the shifts were longer and they had less sleep. One of the major reasons, shorter shifts mean doctors hand off critical information about you and your care to the next team on duty more frequently.” ABC added that there is “something you can do to protect yourself. If possible, when you’re in the hospital, always have an advocate with you, a family member, a friend, who can help make sure that the important information about you has been passed along correctly.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
