6/30 - Doctor Michael Ramsay , Andrew Sharon, Bruce Steart, Larry Lipson,

Doctor Michael Ramsay  "The July Effect"
New research shows that the “July effect” is real. There really is a greater chance of dying in the hospital during the month of July. That’s the word from researchers at UC San Diego. The scary statistics keep adding up. Thousands of people already in the hospital die of preventable problems.
The 2010 Patient Safety in American Hospitals study [published by HealthGrades] says more than 99-thousand patient deaths in U.S. hospitals could have been prevented. A new study by the University of California at San Diego [published in the latest edition of the Journal of General Internal Medicine] is now calling attention to the spike in fatal hospital errors during the month of July [known as the “July Effect”].  Our Guest is Dr. Michael Ramsay, anesthesiologist and respected expert in the fields of blood and pain management. He will discuss how new medical advancements and technologies are making lifesaving differences at hospitals across America. Each day, over 40,000 patient safety incidents occur at U.S. hospitals—costing $8.9B in excess healthcare costs. *Even a single incident increases the risk of death to 1 in 10. Deaths due to preventable errors spike during the month of July as new medical school graduates begin their residencies. Some hospitals are using new noninvasive, wireless medical technologies as a ‘safety net’ to directly prevent these deaths and injuries. Find out about these patient ‘safety nets’ and how they can protect you/your loved one.
