From the graphic: “We all think of the hospital as the place to go to get better. But hospitals in the United States are making people sicker at alarming rates. Between overtired interns, germ-covered doctors, and haphazard record keeping, you might find yourself in more trouble than you were when you checked in.“
There is a large list of why US hospitals aren’t as safe as you may have thought. This infographic details medical errors, the spread of infections within hospitals, poor sanitation, and inefficiencies in record keeping.
Do you think a larger budget in Healthcare would improve hospital conditions?
