Medical Mistakes!

Medical Mistakes!

A recent survey has found that 21% of those surveyed had personally been a victim of a medical blunder, while 31% were close to someone who was. Common medical blunders include sending someone for the wrong tests, inaccurate lab results, and even misdiagnosis of a deadly disease. Walk-in clinics are the sites of many of these mistakes, due to wrong diagnoses and poor communication between the patient and the healthcare provider. Kind of makes me a little uneasy about going to the doctor.
