 Hospitals Responsible for 75K Preventable Deaths from Infection

This is from a study by a Dartmouth medical prof:

Some medical specialties and geographical areas are suffering from a glut of
doctors and hospitals, these experts say. Supply seems to drive demand. More
hospitals in an area mean many more days spent in hospitals with no
discernible improvements in health. More medical specialists mean many more
specialist visits and procedures. ...

"When all is said and done," Dr. Berwick said, "the people who have been
most serious about it rarely think we are underresourced. The evidence to my
mind is so strong. More is not better, and it often is very, very much
worse."

Putting these studies together, they tell us how to reduce preventable
deaths. Don't waste time with helmets, just get rid of the physicians
and hospitals!

Good idea. And when little Johnny, without a helmet,  gets hit by a car, we
can blame the death on no hospitals around.

All the best,
