A recent study has many patients questioning exactly how safe they are in a hospital.
How risky should it be to go to the hospital? Does going to the hospital seem like a bigger risk than flying? Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the United Nations, released a report that indicated that going to the hospital may be far riskier than previously believed. In fact, the WHO report indicates that the risk of being hurt or killed because of a medical error in a hospital is far greater than the risk of being killed or injured in a plane crash.
