Avoiding pharmacy errors

One-third of adults in the United States take five or more medications. The definition of adverse drug events includes any harms a patient experiences as a result of taking medication. Although ADEs account for only about 100,000 hospitalizations each year, they are still one of the most common inpatient errors, affecting about 5 percent of patients in hospitals. According to the Patient Safety Network, not every ADE is an error, nor does it indicate poor quality of care. However, when there is an actual error, it is generally preventable. 

How much would it cost to add good safety tech to your car? $500.

The National Transportation Safety Board has urged automakers to make forward collision avoidance system -- automatic braking when an upcoming object is detected -- standard on all vehicles sold in the United States. Last year, the safety agency released a 60-page report arguing that manufacturers should have to shoulder the cost, too.
