Many readers have commented on Dr. Patrick Neustatter’s Healthy Living column from last Sunday, on why patients sometimes have to sit so long in their doctors’ waiting rooms, and how time pressures frustrate physicians and patients alike.
A column this Sunday in Healthy Living is likely to spark a lot of interest as well. Dr. Christopher Lillis just sent me his latest contribution, this one on medical errors, how shockingly often they occur, and what seemingly simple steps doctors could take to prevent more of them.
Look for Dr. Lillis’ column on Sunday. And if you haven’t seen Dr. Neustatter’s column on time crunches — or the discussion about it on fredericksburg.com — you can check it all out here: http://www.fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2010/112010/11282010/589522
