A new Johns Hopkins study estimates that more than 250,000 Americans die each year from medical errors. This includes deaths from surgical mistakes, incorrect medications, and treating the wrong patient, and it places medical errors just behind heart disease and cancer as our biggest killers.
However, the exact number of these types of deaths is probably much higher because this estimate doesn’t include things like errors in diagnoses and breakdowns in communications. Most of all, it doesn’t include the countless times that an egotistical doctor can’t admit when he is wrong. The real number of deaths from medical errors is probably easily 500,000. How can this be?
Well, doctors come out of medical school with a unwarranted chip on their shoulder. They recognize that they have spent more time and money on their education than most people, and somehow they think they can do no wrong. Then when the inevitable mistake occurs, they can’t admit it. They use their training to their own advantage by manipulating the records to make themselves look better. And we patients are partly to blame because, for unknown reasons, we agree to elevate them in social status and treat them like gods. Everybody needs to know that doctors make mistakes.
Why is it not difficult for me to believe that doctors would resort to immoral and illegal tactics to save their own reputations? Well, it’s because I’ve been to see doctors a few times. I can see and sense their huge egos and feelings of superiority. I also know that they make tons of money, and, unlike in previous days, that seems to be the driving force behind their careers. During the past two years, two of my regular doctors have retired to their tropical islands at about age 50. Their excuse: Obamacare paperwork–while trying to help hurting people didn’t seem to enter into their retirement plans. Whatever happened to the day when doctors felt like they should work into their seventies or eighties to help justify the high cost of their education, and to help people as long as they could?
Furthermore, doctors intentionally cause the deaths of 100,000 HEALTHY babies in the womb every year by performing abortions. Consider the truth about the leading causes of death in the United States each year:
•Medical Errors: 500,000
•Heart Disease: 500,000
Or, here’s another way to look at it:
•Healthcare: 1,500,000 (1,000,000 Intentional & 500,000 Medical Errors)
Why did we modernize the Hippocratic Oath and delete the “first do no harm” objective? Doctors are supposed to help people, not hurt them or abort them. They’re also supposed to be honest.
