Are you tired of reading that medical errors are the third leading cause of death? Me too. We all know this is not the case from our own experience. I recently read it again as a quote in an article from a prominent medical journal and decided I had enough. I penned an article refuting this, using common sense, and it was published on KevinMD this week. It’s time to stop frightening patients with this nonsense and speak up.

What a “common sense” article!
Too bad reporters/congresscritters/general public don’t want to use common sense.
Thanks for your comments. Common sense is not always common practice. I wish that were not the case.
