Mistakes in Canadian Hospitals
Wednesday, August 22, 2007
Other issues in Canadian hospitals include "The chances of an adult contracting an infection while in an acute care hospital are about the same: 1 in 10, while the chances of a child contracting an infection while in hospital are about 1 in 12.
Very scary. This why it is important to ask about EVERYTHING being given to you and if you are unable to talk have someone else speak for you. There is nothing wrong with saying "No" to a medication, procedure or so forth. This is your right. Report reactions of any sort to your doctor right away. Make and informed decision about your health.
The trouble with always trying to preserve the health of the body is that it is so difficult to do without destroying the health of the mind.
I'm not sure if you saw this or not, but I was watching Canada AM the other day and they were talking about a new treatment for Cluster Headaches, here is the link:
Hope it helps!!
*Please do not use this information for self diagnoses. Writing about my experiences with chronic cluster headaches & epilepsy is a good outlet for me. Consult your Dr. with any kind of headache or chronic pain you may have. The 3rd party links on my site I have found to be a good resource to me over the past few years & dearly hope they will benefit you as well.*
