OK I am on a rant sort of. It never ceases to amaze me that are medical institutions can't understand the concept of BLEACH

I know someone who got pinkeye from the ER, he was in there overnight because of some nasty Gastroenteritis(which they probably just called it because they didnt know what it was).

Can you believe that there are 90,000 deaths a year from hospital acquired infections. That's shocking. The hospitals do a good job of hiding that fact from everyday knowledge. Too bad the anti gunners don't figure out the real threats to our safety and leave us alone.

Isn't that the truth.

CDC says that the single highest cause of untimely death in the US, higher than even automobile accidents or heart disease, in Physician and hospital malpractice. The 90,000 number fails to take into account physician's offices, outpatient treatment centers, 'dial a doc,' or 'doc in a box' outfits, prescribing the wrong medication or amount, failure to properly diagnose, misdiagnoses, etc.

I don't recall the number precisely (I believe it was in the 370,000 range), but a quick search of CDC data, extrapolating together all physician and healthcare facility linked deaths will astound you.

A doc in a box one night told Lisa that the cramps and stomach pain she was having was acid reflux. Imagine my surprise when a some months later my first born was born

That sounds like a place we have here called The health care center, more commonly called the quack care center.

The wife did not show at all for first 3 months and still spotted each month. Although a week ofter the "doc in a box" visit the EPT got it correct
